Indonesia's Lion Air's flight JT 610 crashed in the Java Sea with 189 people on board.
The engine is now in the Navy's KRI Banda Aceh and will be delivered on Wednesday to the investigation center at the Tanjung Priok port, added the spokesman, who was quoted by the Bernama agency.
On Monday, the Indonesian National Transport Safety Committee (KNKT) said that a breakdown in the aircraft's airspeed indicator could have caused the accident.
According to KNKT experts, it is too early to determine the cause of the tragedy, which left no survivors, while the investigation now focuses on the analysis of flight data recorded in one of the black boxes found last Thursday.
On the other hand, the Disaster Victim Identification Office of the Indonesian Police reported 44 identified victims so far. ■
