"Another that has not yet been found is Flight Data Recorder (FDR)."
Jakarta (ANTARA News) - The black box or Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) of ill-fated Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ-100) arrived at Halim Perdanakusuma air force base, here, Wednesday.

The CVR was flown by a helicopter to Halim from Bogor, West Java, after being officially handed over by Chairman of the Nasitonal Search and Rescue Agency (Basarnas) Vice Marshal Daryatmo to Head of the National Committee of Transportation Safety (KNKT) Tatang Kurniadi, at Pasir Pogor Square, Bogor.

"Another that has not yet been found is Flight Data Recorder (FDR)," Daryatmo said earlier in Bogor.

The Basarnas chief has ordered rescuers to keep on looking for more bodies of the air crash`s victims and the FDR.

The KNKT chief said it will take some time to down load the contents of the CVR. "The downloading of the CVR`s contents will need one week," Tatang Kurniadi said.

Five members of the Army`s Special Force Command (Kopassus) led by First Lieutenant Taufik Akbar retrieved the black box from a ravine of Mount Salak, on Tuesday, around 100 meters away from the plane`s shredded tail.

The Russian-made SSJ-100 with 45 people on board - eight Russians, 35 Indonesians, one Frenchman, and one American - was on a demonstration flight when it crashed into Mount Salak in Bogor district, West Java, on Wednesday (May 9) afternoon. So far, there have been no reports of survivors.
