Flight QZ8501 went down in the Java Sea on December 28 in stormy weather during what was supposed to be a short trip from the Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore. The plane's black boxes were recovered this week, providing investigators with a wealth of information to determine what caused the crash, and on Wednesday a Singapore navy vessel spotted the fuselage, the jet's main body. Underwater photos taken by high-tech search equipment showed the fuselage and part of Malaysia-based AirAsia's motto — "Now Everyone Can Fly" — painted on the plane's exterior.
