Recovery teams endured another frustrating day on the Java Sea on Thursday as bad weather and murky waters late into the night continued to prevent divers from reaching Indonesia AirAsia Flight 8501, believed to be submerged 150 feet below the surface.With inclement conditions expected to continue at least until Sunday, officials said it could be several more days before recovery crews get to the wreckage of the Airbus A320-200 and attempt to locate the “black box” flight recorders that investigators say will help explain what caused the plane to crash Dec. 28 during a thunderstorm. Aerial searches and sonar images have suggested the plane is lying upside-down on the relatively shallow sea floor. Only nine bodies out of 162 passengers and crew have been recovered, and experts believe that many of the others could still be strapped in their seats inside the body of the jet.“I am hoping that the latest information is correct and aircraft has been found,” AirAsia Chief Executive Tony Fernandes tweeted. “Please all hope together. This is so important.”lRelated AsiaBad weather stalls AirAsia wreckage search; 7 bodies recoveredSee all relatedOfficials said that churning waves and noise levels below the water’s surface were making it harder for teams conducting an acoustic search to isolate pings from the recorders.“In deep water black boxes are easier to detect, but in shallow water the noise level is higher,” said Toos Sanitioso, an investigator from Indonesia’s National Transport Safety Committee. “It will take some time to find them.”The head of Indonesia’s National Transport Safety Committee, Tatang Kurniadi, said teams were “racing against time” because the black boxes emit signals only for 30 days, after which it becomes more difficult to locate them.!– Indonesia plane crash Adek Berry / AFP/Getty Images An Indonesian navy helicopter carrying two bodies from AirAsia Flight 8501 recovered from the Java Sea prepares to land at Pangkalan Bun in Central Kalimantan on Jan. 1.

A San Diego-based U.S. Navy destroyer, the Sampson, was approaching the search area, and along with Indonesian and Singaporean ships would begin conducting undersea search operations overnight, officials said.More than two full days since debris was discovered south of Borneo island, some luggage, part of the aircraft’s emergency stairs, a metal tank and stray chunks of fuselage were among the few items that teams had pulled from the water despite a massive search operation involving six nations.“Today the weather was unfriendly,” search chief Bambang Soelistyo told a news conference, adding that waves were between 10 and 13 feet.
