Indonesian officials said they have downloaded the data from a black box recorder for Lion Air flight 610 which crashed into Java sea last week while at least 105 body bags containing parts of passengers have been handed to the national police hospital in Jakarta for identification.

The damage was revealed after data had been downloaded from the plane's flight data recorder, KNKT chief Soerjanto Tjahjono told reporters, adding that it was asking Boeing and U.S. authorities what action to take to prevent similar problems on this type of plane around the world. It was not immediately clear whether the problem with the crashed jet stemmed from a mechanical or maintenance issue, and USA authorities responded cautiously to suggestions of fleet-wide checks.

Bloomberg News is quoting an unnamed source as saying Boeing plans to warn operators of its 737 MAX jets that erroneous readings from a flight monitoring system could cause the planes to dive aggressively.

"I'm still of the opinion that losing airspeed on the airplane shouldn't result in losing the airplane", Cox said.

But authorities will also question the pilots from the previous flight from Bali to Jakarta about the exact nature of the problems they encountered.

Tjahjono and investigator Nurcahyo Utomo told a news conference that the new information is consistent with earlier reports that the plane's speed and altitude were erratic, the Associated Press reported. "That happened several times during the flight", he said. Lion Air declined to comment.

Black box data recovered from the crashed Lion Air jet showed the plane had an airspeed indicator problem on its four flights. Lion Air said Monday that almost 70 ships have been deployed in the search, with more than 1,000 people involved. "This is what we do not know yet and we will find it out", he said.

Indonesian officials are providing the strongest hints yet that a faulty airspeed indicator played a role in the deadly crash of a Lion Air jet into the Java Sea. Tears flowed as flowers were thrown into the water in remembrance of the 189 lives lost on board Lion Air flight JT-610.

Authorities have yet to recover the jet's cockpit voice recorder from the sea floor, just north-east of Jakarta, where the plane crashed 13 minutes into its flight.

Family members and friends have farewelled loved ones who died in the Lion Air plane crash in an emotional memorial service at the crash site in Indonesia.

Data transmitted from the plane and captured by flightradar24.com indicates that the plane continued flying at high speed away from the airport to which they meant to return, which Cox said seemed unusual.

As the 270-square-mile search for debris widened over the weekend, Indonesian authorities broadened a review of Lion Air's operations, including the airline's standard operating procedures and flight-crew qualifications.

The Lion Air investigation comes after Indonesia's government ordered an inspection of all Boeing 737 Max 8 planes in the country.

Mr Tjahjono said based on initial analysis the "engine was running with fairly high speed" when it hit the water.
