Lion Air incident: no longer detected the signal from the missing black box
However, research continues in the hope of recovering it
The signals from the Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) of the Boeing B-737 MAX 8 aircraft from Lion Air, which crashed on October 29 shortly after take-off from Jakarta, has been detected, making it virtually impossible to find the missing black box. Nevertheless, the armed forces of Indonesia are continuing to plumb the area where the airplane crashed in hopes of recovering it, since with the vocal recordings of what happened in the cockpit it would be possible to give a general picture to the accident. The head of the National Transport Safety Committee (KNKT, Komite Nasional Keselamatan Transportasi) Soerjanto Tjahjono, who explained that the research team is working on an area within a range of 300 meters, said yesterday that the research will continue. sonar and "draining" the mud at the bottom of the sea. The hope is to detect again the signal of the second black box, also because without this the results of the investigation can not be 100% accurate, especially for the indications to give to the pilots.
KNKT is expected to announce the preliminary report next Wednesday, while Lion Air should meet Boeing the next day so as to be able to examine carefully the orders placed for 261 B-737 MAX up to 2035.
