AirAsia QZ8501 Tail Recovered (Photos)

The tail of AirAsia QZ8501 has been recovered from the seabed of the Java Sea. The rear part of the Airbus A320-200, that crahed two weeks ago, was spotted on Wednesday by an unmanned underwater vehicle at a depth of about 30m (100ft). It was upside down and partially buried about 30km (20 miles) from the point of last contact with the plane, off the coast of Borneo.
The tail was lifted in the hope to find both “Black boxes” that are usually located in the rear, but they remain missing.
48 bodies have been found so far, most of the bodies may still be inside the fuselage of the plane, which has yet to be found. Progress has been slow due to high waves and stormy weather.
