On Friday, July 9th, the NTSB said that components of the plane, such as wings and tail, are located on the seafloor at depths between 360 and 420 feet. Also, an update issued by the NTSB stated that the wreckage is in several pieces on the ocean floor.

However, the depth of wreckage is too deep to send divers to recover the flight recorder containing the aircraft's flight data and cockpit voice recorders. 

But the investigative team in charge is considering a way to remove the aircraft's wreckage from the sea to investigate the reasons for the crash in Oahu, Hawaii.
