    One of the black boxes of the crashed Boeing 737-500 of Sriwijaya Air has been secured by divers. It concerns the Flight Data Recorder, which keeps track of the flight data. That is important to find out the cause of the accident.

    The other black box, the cockpit voice recorder, is still being searched for. It is clear where it is approximately. The Indonesian authorities therefore expect that they will also be able to secure the cockpit voice recorder in the short term.

    After the crash, a gigantic operation was set up. In total, 160 divers, 13 helicopters, 54 large ships and 20 small ones are engaged in searching for the debris of the plane, locating the black boxes and recovering the victims.
