The Lion Air jet that crashed short of the runway in Bali is going to be cut into pieces for removal since the plane is too heavy to tow.

The wreckage is sitting on top of a reef, rocking with the waves.

The cockpit voice recorder was recovered by navy divers.

None of the 101 passengers or seven crew were injured when the crew opted for a water landing. The pilot and co-pilot tested negative for drugs and alcohol

Lion Air AKA PT Lion Mentari Airlines is banned from flying in Europe because of its safety record.
