AirAsia Flight QZ8501: No Evidence found Yet into Cause of Crash

Wellington, Jan 06: None of the debris found in the AirAsia flight QZ8501 crash search so far has provided any evidence to determine the cause of the crash while search teams continue to hunt the black box flight recorder.

According to, a total of 37 bodies have been recovered so far as the flight recorder search team was pulled out after two unsuccessful days, said an Indonesian National Transport Safety Committee investigator.

Several attempts were made to lower a device in the water called towed pinger locator but due to bad weather conditions like waves and current, the operations failed many a times.

The black box battery only works for a month so the team has 21 days left to locate the black box, said an official.

The search team is hoping to resume the hunt for balc box tomorrow when the weather conditions improve.
