Indonesian search teams have recovered the first bits of wreckage of a passenger plane that crashed into the Java Sea on Saturday. An air crash investigator has now said the jet likely shattered at extremely high speed when hitting the waters. 62 people were on board the Boeing 737. Authorities have also pinpointed the location of the flight recorders. They hope the black box data will clarify why the plane came down just minutes after taking off from Jakarta.
