IndonIndonesia searches for crashed jet black boxes

Indonesian rescue teams were scouring wreckage of a crashed passenger plane for black data boxes on Monday.

The head of rescue efforts around the downed Sriwijaya Air jet said they'll focus on finding the bodies of victims, a sign that chances of finding survivors are fading.

"Anything that we can retrieve, debris, victims or else, we will try (to access). The quicker we can find victims, the better."

The Boeing 737-500 jet disappeared from radar four minutes after take-off from Jakarta headed toward Borneo island. Sixty-two people were on board.

Officials say Monday's search will cover a wider area under the Java sea and along the coast, in case debris had been carried by the current.

Authorities already pinpointed the location of the jet's data recorders, or black boxes, over the weekend, while rescuers recovered the jet's fuselage and human remains.

Only two years ago Indonesia saw another deadly crash, when a faulty Boeing 737 Max killed all passengers and crew onboard.

In a statement over the weekend, Boeing offered condolences and said:

"We are in contact with our airline customers and stand ready to support them during this difficult time."

The Sriwijaya Air plane was a nearly 27-year-old Boeing 737-500, a model much older than Boeing's plagued 737 MAX.
