AirAsia flight data recorder recovered by divers

A team of Indonesian navy divers has recovered the 'black box' flight data recorder from an AirAsia plane that crashed into the Java Sea two weeks ago, killing all 162 on board, Reuters have reported.

But an Indonesian government official also said that the cockpit voice recorder has not yet been found.

The cockpit voice and flight data recorders are vital to understanding what brought Flight 8501 down on 28 December, killing all 162 people on board.
