Hallan caja negra del jet de Lion Air

November 1, 2018 -- Buzos de la armada indonesia recuperaron una de las dos cajas negras del jet de Lion Air, que cayó en el Mar de Java, en un hallazgo crucial para la investigación de las causas del accidente del avión que tenía solo dos meses en servicio.

Lion Air Flight JT610 with 189 people on board crashed early Monday just minutes after takeoff from the Indonesian capital Jakarta. It was the worst airline disaster in Indonesia in more than two decades and renewed concerns about safety in its fast-growing aviation industry, which was recently removed from European Union and U.S. blacklists.

The device recovered by divers is the flight data recorder and the search for the cockpit voice recorder continues, said Bambang Irawan, an investigator with the National Transport Safety Commission.

The location of the find was about 500 metres northwest of the coordinates where the plane lost contact with air traffic control, and at a depth of 30 metres.

Investigators hope the recovery of the black boxes will shed light on why the aircraft, a Boeing 737 MAX 8 that was just two months old, crashed in fine weather with experienced pilots.


21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
