Air Asia plane tail found, divers search for black boxes

The causes of the air disaster in which the Malaysian airline AirAsia crashed are still unknown. The plane was commanded by an experienced pilot, and the Airbus A320 itself is a modern machine which meets very high standards. A big question mark for investigators is also the absence of any signals which should have been present in an emergency situation. The remains of the plane found in the Java Sea are now being explored for answers.

According to those responsible for the search operation, the tail of the aircraft has been found. This allows us to assume that now it should only be a matter of time before the black boxes are found, which should explain the cause of the accident.

Due to the favourable weather and calm sea, a team of divers was sent into action. Their task is to explore and search the found part of the tail and find the black boxes.

“The weather and the sea are finally on our side. After heavy rains and high waves that hampered the search, we can finally search the tail, which we were able to locate thanks to a side scan sonar search.”

The most important task now facing the divers is to locate the cockpit voice recorder and the device recording data on the flight itself.

A Malaysian airline plane with the number QZ8501 went missing on 28 December 2014. There were 160 passengers on board. More than 90 vessels are involved in the search and rescue operation, supported additionally by aircraft units. The bodies of 40 passengers have so far been found.
