Indonesian officials say search teams have located the tail of the missing AirAsia plane in the Java Sea Wednesday, a finding that could provide new information on what happened to the aircraft.
"These pictures are simply haunting. You can make out the plane, the logo. It says AirAsia on it. You can see the 'A' on the plane as well," said ABC International Correspondent Muhammad Lila.
AirAsia's CEO says the plane's tail is a crucial discovery because it should contain the black box, which holds voice and data recorders, unless it was jarred loose when the plane crashed. (Video via ODN)
