Search crews have located the tail of AirAsia Flight 8501, which officials believe crashed off the coast of Borneo on December 28 while maneuvering to avoid bad weather. Rescuers found the jet’s tail at the bottom of the Java Sea and are hoping that its discovery could lead to them to the aircraft’s black boxes and further information about what doomed the flight.
