Reportedly the cockpit data recorder was recovered within days of the crash and showed that the jet's airspeed indicator had malfunctioned on its last four flights. Meanwhile if the voice recorder is undamaged, it could provide valuable additional information to investigators. Reports added Lion Air is one of Indonesia's youngest airlines but has grown rapidly, flying to dozens of domestic and international destinations, a fast growing region of more than 600 million people.
