Divers see crashed Lion Air jet fuselage as 'ping' heard in search for black box

An Indonesian diver has died during the search and rescue operation for the Lion Air flight carrying 189 passengers and crew that crashed into the sea Monday.

Speaking on the sixth day of the search, Muhammad Syaugi said that two engines and more landing gear had been found.

"I'm sure the total will increase", Mr Syaugi said, adding remains were also now washing up on land.

Two days after the flight data recorder was recovered, investigators at Indonesia's national transportation safety committee have yet to download the key data due to salt residue on the memory card.

Debris is seen on the sea bed in the search area for Lion Air's flight JT610 airplane, in Indonesia, November 2, 2018, in this still image taken from video obtained from social media. It has been damaged and requires special handling, they say.

Dozens of body bags containing remains have been recovered from the crash site.

According to him, shortly after takeoff from the airport of Jakarta from the airliner Lion Air has received an alarm signal, but then the pilot announced the problem and made a decision to continue their journey.

On Monday, the plane crashed 13 minutes after taking off from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Jakarta.

"From here we will analyse what happened to that flight", Nurcahyo Utomo, head of Indonesia's transportation safety committee, told reporters.

In December 2014, an Air Asia flight from Surabaya to Singapore plunged into the sea, killing all 162 on board.
