Sriwijaya Air plane black box arrives in Jakarta

The flight data recorder arrived at a port in Jakarta on Tuesday evening and was shown to the media.

At the news conference, Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Committee chief Soerjanto Tjahjono said they expect to be able to read the information on the recorder in two to five days.

The Boeing 737-500 plane with 62 people on board plunged into the Java Sea on Saturday (January 9), four minutes after taking off from Jakarta's main airport.

The plane was headed on a domestic flight to Pontianak on Borneo island, about 740 km (460 miles) from Jakarta, before it disappeared from radar screens.
