Sky News are reporting that 

Salvage experts recover the flight data recorder from the AirAsia plane a
fortnight after it crashed into the Java Sea.
An AirAsia
jet which crashed into the sea with 162 people on board exploded on impact,
according to salvage experts.
analysis of the wreckage suggests the aircraft shattered because the cabin had
not depressurised when it slammed into the water.
S.B. Supriyadi, a director with
the Indonesian national search and rescue agency, said: “The cabin was
pressurised and before the pressure of the cabin could be adjusted, it went
down – boom. That explosion was heard in the area.”
A team of navy divers has now
retrieved the flight data recorder from wreckage after a fortnight-long
frustrating search which has been hampered by bad weather.
