a20-200 if discovered could reveal why this plane went down. let's go live to anna coren in indonesia. anna the black boxes that the drivers want to bring up are tantalizing for investigators. they want to get in there. even if it's in not this particular part of the tail really important that finally a piece of this wreckage has been found on the seafloor. >> reporter: yeah and such a significant piece of the wreckage as well. look, it is very promising, there's no doubt about it. and according to officials, they are deploying a subsalvage vehicle to retrieve the tail. it was going to be used for the rest of the plane body to be lifted up from the bottom of the java sea. they're now dispatching it for the tail. they do believe that the black boxes are inside. there are divers that have been in the water all this afternoon. it's just on 5:30 in the
afternoon local time here in indonesia. but certainly, those divers have identified and been inspecting the tail. and not decision has been made to pull it out of the mud. it was found upside down deep in the mud. it's now being pulled out of the mud. that is the plan so that they can then pull it apart and hopefully find those black boxes. we've also learned today that another body has been found. taking it to 40 the number of people that have been recovered. but there's still another 122 passengers and crew who are missing that were on board this airasia flight 8501. but, christine, we're also learning that once the black boxes are retrieved that the data will be analyzed in jakarta, the capital of indonesia. so it will not be sent anywhere else. it's all going to be handled here. and it's obviously, once the information is downloaded we

airasia flight 8501 tony fernandes a little earlier. he put out a tweet saying that if the right part of the tail is located, the black boxes will definitely be in there. but certainly, all assets have deployed to this area. it was a second priority area. it wasn't even the first priority area. it was by sonar that they discovered this wreckage. it wasn't actually by the pings emitted from those black boxes. so definitely a major breakthrough and a great deal of hope in this find. >> anna coren in surabaya. keep us posted if anything is found. thank you, anna. a new warning from the baltimore police department has officers around the country on alert this morning. baltimore officials say a man carrying a loaded .22-caliber handgun walked into a police station tuesday morning allegedly on demand of a street gang to test the facility. officers searched the 21-year-old jason armstrong

cnn's alexandra field was there at the museum of fine arts for unveiling. >> reporter: christine, john, physically, we're talking about something very small, 5 1/2 by 7 1/2 inch but really it's enough to take us all the way back through history to this nation's very beginning. these relics were first combed together back in 1795. it's been 220 years. and now the whole world finally gets to see what's inside. five newspapers, 23 coins, one of them stretches as far back as 1652. a model imprinted with george washington. a paper seal of the commonwealth of massachusetts. and perhaps most significantly, a silver plate with the names etched on it paul revere and samuel adams. they're the two men who put these relics together in the first place back in 1795. on the 4th day of july, they buried them together under a cornerstone at the massachusetts statehouse, and that's where they stayed. it wasn't until 1855 that all of those things were found.
