The Boeing 737-500 jet was headed on a domestic flight to Pontianak on Borneo island, about 460 miles from Jakarta, before it disappeared from radar screens four minutes after take-off and crashed into the Java sea.
Authorities pinpointed the area where the data recorders, known as black boxes, are located on Sunday (January 10) as they lifted chunks of the jet's fuselage off the sea bed. Rescuers have also found human body parts and their personal effects.
Rescuers have so far found one of the jet's turbines, pieces of the plane's tail, the rim of a wheel and an emergency chute, as well as clothing and personal belongings from passengers. Flight SJ 182 had 12 crew and 50 passengers on board, all Indonesians and including 10 children.
