Transcript for Investigators Say AirAsia Flight 320 Climbed at Extreme Rate Before Crash
We turn to you to new details on airasia flight 8501 now reports of warning alarms screaming in the cockpit and important questions still out there about what exactly what went wrong. ABC's David Kerley reports from Reagan national airport. Good morning, David. Reporter: Good morning, George. We're just getting snippets and comments from the Indonesians who had the black boxes for nearly ten days all as we try to piece together this puzzle of flight 8501. This morning, six more bodies have been recovered from the waters of the java sea, some still buckled into their seats. This morning still no indication whether it was the pilot or the plane's computer that may have contributed to this crash. We don't know if the computer in this airplane is involved or not but if it is, this is unprecedented for the airbus a320 family. Airbus stands to be concerned with what happened in the case as do the nypdens but want to see an international consortium working on them, not just them. Reporter: Chaos in the cockpit. At last report officials say only half the airasia cockpit recording has been transcribed because there's so many sounds and alarms blaring over the pilots' voices. Unnamed source quoted in the French press saying in the moments before the fatal crash, the jet was in essence screaming at the pilots. Stall, stall. Reporter: Jetliners do alert pilots. Sounding the alarm when something is wrong. According to Indonesian investigators the airasia airbus a320 was flying in severe weather and climbing three times faster than Normal which could have caused it to lose lift and stall falling to Earth. The alarm to pilots sounding something like this. Stall, stall. Reporter: It all could have taken only 3 1/2 to 4 minutes full of terror to fall out of the sky. Safety experts want answers sooner rather than later on whether this may have been involved and contributed to this crash. Why? Because changes can be made and think about it. Today thousands of passengers will be getting on A320s for a flight. We need transparency there. Thanks very much.
