Tail Of AirAsia Flight Lifted From Seabed, Black Boxes Still Missing – 10 January 2015

RT logoThe tail of the crashed AirAsia flight QZ8501 has been salvaged from the Java Sea during the Indonesian-led search. So far, rescue teams have failed to find the flight recorders, which are now thought to have fallen off on impact.

Divers used inflatable floating balloons to raise the tail from the seabed and a crane to load it onto the ship.
