JAKARTA. KAZINFORM - The cockpit voice recorder of crashed AirAsia flight QZ8501 was retrieved on Tuesday from sea and was on board an Indonesian navy ship bound for capital Jakarta for analysis, local press reported.

The black box was detected and lifted from the sea near the location where the flight data recorder was retrieved a day ago, according to Xinhua. The cockpit voice recorder has been on board an Indonesian navy ship bound for capital Jakarta for analysis, news channel MetroTV said. The flight data recorder retrieved near the wrecked wing of the Airbus 320-200 on Monday morning has also been transported to the capital for investigation. The AirAsia airliner carrying 162 people crashed into the Java Sea on Dec. 28 in a flight from Indonesia's second-biggest city of Surabaya to Singapore. The search operation, which entered 17th day on Tuesday, have been hampered by big waves and powerful currents. By far, 48 bodies were recovered with 34 of them having been identified, while most of the undiscovered ones were believed to be entombed.
