Lion Air plane’s landing gear, part of aircraft body found

Jakarta (CNN)Indonesia’s national search and rescue agency said it found the crashed Lion Air plane’s landing gear, the wheels and a large part of the body of the aircraft during Thursday’s search.

The discovery of the landing gear comes a day after investigators found the flight data recorder, commonly known as a “black box,” from Lion Air Flight JT610. The discovery should help explain why the new Boeing 737 crashed on Monday, killing all 189 people on board.
Speaking at a news conference at Tanjung Priok port in Jakarta, Muhammad Syauqi said the search agency used another strategy during its operations to try to locate plane parts. The strategy entailed anchoring a ship belonging to an oil company because the vessel was already well-versed in the location. A remotely operated vehicle (ROV) was also used.
