Search and Rescue officers collect the debris and passengers'personal items of the Lion Air JT610 that crashed into the sea off Karawang of West Java province in the base of Search and Rescue at the Tanjung Priok port, Jakarta, Oct. 29, 2018. "We believe the fuselage will be around there, we hope that our target can be found".

The devices record information about the speed, altitude and direction of the plane as well as flight crew conversations.

Two interviewed on Indonesian TV recalled details such as a odd engine sound, a smell of burnt cables, and panicked passengers crying out for God to save them as the plane rapidly lost altitude.

Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Committee (NTSC) said there were 178 adult passengers, one child, two infants, two pilots and six cabin crew on board flight JT 610.

Representatives with the USA -based aviation company were flying to Indonesia Wednesday to meet with officials with budget airline Lion Air, which has ordered 50 of the new 737 MAX 8 planes at a cost of $6.2 billion.

Mr Ayorbaba captured the waiting Lion Air plane in its trademark red and white on the tarmac and panned to a another Lion Air jet in the distance.

In a statement, Lion Air said human remains had been collected in 24 body bags after sweeps of the crash site, which is about 15km off the coast to the northeast of Jakarta.

As usual, the New England Patriots have control over the AFC East, and we are just hitting the midway point of the season. He'll face a Patriots defense that ranks 26th against the pass, allowing 289 yards per game through the air.

The day before the crash, the same aircraft experienced a hard takeoff from Bali, with passengers "panicking and vomiting" when the plane lurched with rapid descents until it eventually stabilised.

A team of divers had gone down since early morning to map the area where the black box is thought to be, Haryo said, describing sea conditions as normal.

"Of course there are lots of things we will ask them, we all have question marks here, 'Why?" As a result an underwater search had begun, involving 30 specialised divers, according to the Jakarta Post.Lion Air has flown 169 family members of those on board JT610 to Jakarta to help with identifying the remains.

The black box could provide clues to what happened after the two-month-old plane lost contact with ground staff just 13 minutes after taking off early on Monday from Jakarta, on its way to the tin-mining town of Pangkal Pinang. In December 2014, an AirAsia flight from Surabaya to Singapore plunged into the sea, killing all 162 on board.

To allow for an uninterrupted investigation, Indonesia's transport ministry on Thursday issued 120-day suspensions to Lion Air's maintenance and engineering directors, its fleet maintenance manager, and the engineer who gave the jet permission to fly on Monday, Reuters reported. The Federal Aviation Administration lifted that ban in August 2016.

Jakarta, a sprawling megacity of more than 10 million people, is known for having some of South-East Asia's worst traffic congestion.
