The aircraft - a McDonnell-Douglas MD-82, carrying 103 passengers and nine crew members between Beijing and Dalian - crashed into the waters off northeastern China, killing all 112 people on board.

The flight data recorder was reportedly found at 1452 local time on Saturday (18 May). The workers had previously retrieved the aircraft's cockpit voice recorder last Tuesday (14 May), reported Reuters.
