Divers retrieve AirAsia flight data recorder from crashed jet, but hunt is on for other black box

Divers and an unmanned underwater vehicle on Wednesday spotted the tail of the AirAsia plane that crashed into the Java Sea with 162 people on board, an important finding because the jet’s all-important black boxes are located in that part of the aircraft.
