Indonesian search and rescue teams plan to start lifting the crashed AirAsia jet's tail off the seabed today, raising hopes that "black box" recorders can be retrieved to reveal the cause of the disaster.

AirAsia Flight 8501 crashed on December 28th during stormy weather as it flew from the Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore, claiming the lives of all 162 people on board.

Bad weather and huge waves have plagued multinational efforts to find the wreckage of the plane in the Java Sea, as well as all of the bodies and the black boxes that should contain the pilots' last words.
