The search for the black boxes of AirAsia QZ8501 isn't over yet. Rescuers didn't find the boxes in the plane's tail after bringing it up from the bottom of the Java Sea.
The Wall Street Journal quotes the head of Indonesia's Transportation Safety Committee. He believes the black boxes are within a kilometer of the site where the tail was discovered.
But the search for the black boxes won't be easy, as divers face limited visibility, strong currents and a muddy sea bottom in their search. (Video via Euronews)
