AirAsia Flight 8501

Weather delays search for AirAsia plane's flight recorder

Heavy seas have prevented divers from trying to find the black-box flight recorders from AirAsia Flight 8501, which crashed into the Java Sea on Sunday with 162 people on board. The plane was en route from Surabaya to Singapore. Dive crews are on stand-by to check out a large shadow spotted by a search pilot, but Toos Sanitiyoso, an investigator with Indonesia's National Committee for Transportation Safety, said Thursday that it could take a week to find the flight recorders.
