Head of the Indonesian search and rescue team Basarnas, Muhammad Syaugi said: "Deepest condolences for the passing of a humanitarian hero from the Indonesian Diving Rescue Team".

The brand new Boeing 737's other black box, or flight data recorder, had been found on Thursday, but so far investigators have not been able to recover any information from it, officials said.

Divers prepare to set out for a search, days after Indonesia's Lion Air flight JT610 crashed into the sea, in this image obtained from social media on October 31, 2018.

It is believed that all 189 people on board the plane have been killed.

The Lion Air Flight JT-610 bound for Pangkai Pinan on the Indonesia island of Bangka crashed into the Java Sea shortly after it took off from an airport in Greater Jakarta Monday.

But progress has been hampered by the black box not being fully intact and it needs special handling to ensure its data survive, a process that is continuing, according to the National Transport Safety Committee.

The single-aisle Boeing plane, en route from Jakarta to Pangkal Pinang city, is one of the world's newest and most advanced commercial passenger jets.

Lion Air now possesses 11 of Boeing's one of most advanced aircraft, while National airline Garuda Indonesia has one.

There's no word on worldwide availability, but it will cost 3,999 Yuan (£399) and comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The new variant is called Thunder Purple OnePlus 6T , already known from official promo images we reported earlier today .

Utomo said search and rescue divers were still searching for the second black box, which contains the voice cockpit recording.

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

The Indonesian Transportation Ministry has released a temporary report on the ramp check of all Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes and declared them worth operating.

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau is assisting the Indonesian National Transportation Safety Commission with the reading of the FDR and after cleaning it up hope to download data today. The U.S. lifted a decadelong ban in 2016.

While Lion Air said the condition of the aircraft before take-off had nothing to do with the fatal crash, airline safety analysts told AirlineRatings.com the two are "definitely linked".

Television footage showed an aircraft wheel being hoisted from the sea on Friday and a diver holding a piece of what appeared to be part of the fuselage bearing the Lion Air logo.

It has been expanding aggressively in Southeast Asia, a fast-growing region of more than 600 million people.
