  • Growing questions have been raised about the Lion Air plane’s previous flight

The cockpit voice recorder is one of the two so-called black boxes crucial for the investigation of a plane crash. A press conference is expected later Monday.

Haryo Satmiko, deputy chief of Indonesia's transport safety committee (KNKT), was quoted by Reuters as saying that the cockpit voice recorder (CVR) had been found "but we have not received information of the location yet".

Lion Air initially claimed that problems with the aircraft were fixed before its final flight.

"We're thankful and grateful that they have found the CVR, but it's not enough", said Evi Samsul Komar, whose son and nephew were on the fatal flight.

Investigators brought in a navy ship for a renewed search effort on Jan 8 to find the cockpit voice recorder after the plane crashed into the Java Sea in October.

Information retrieved from the jet's flight data recorder late past year indicated that the pilot was using his controls to bring the airline's nose up but that an automated anti-stall system was pushing it down.

The flight data recorder gathers information about the speed, altitude and direction of the plane with enough storage for 25 hours of data, while the cockpit voice recorder keeps track of pilots' conversations and other sounds in the cockpit.

Mr Nugroho said that a weak signal from the recorder had been detected "for several days".

The main body of the Boeing 737 MAX has yet to be found.

Indonesian media reported in December that Lion Air's chief executive, Edward Sirait, said the airline was considering canceling its remaining orders for almost 200 of the Boeing planes.

Families and colleagues of the victims of Lion Air flight JT610 pray and cry on the deck of an Indonesia Navy ship as they visit the site of the crash.
