Divers are examining the AirAsia fuselage under Java Sea waters to calculate a faster option for recovery of dead bodies inside.
According to media reports, divers in Indonesia have gone down to inspect the fuselage of AirAsia flight QZ8501, which was found at the bottom of the Java Sea on Wednesday January 14. A Singaporean underwater robot photographed this fuselage and so it was confirmed that this was the missing section. Most of the 162 passengers and crew of the crashed plane are still missing, and it is believed that they are inside the fuselage. This wreckage is at a depth of about 28m (92ft) in the Java Sea, 3km (2 miles) from where the tail section was recovered last week.
These divers will determine whether bodies can be removed and the wreckage be raised from the sea floor. This wreckage believed to be fuselage was detected earlier this week, with AirAsia’s slogan “Now everyone can fly” could be seen written along the side.
