Boeing warns airlines about equipment failure after Indonesia crash

The Boeing 737 MAX 8

Preliminary investigations into the Indonesia Lion Air flight 610 Boeing 737 MAX crash have indicated a problem with a sensor that alerts pilots about the possibility of aircraft stalling, especially when the nose is up post lift-off.

Last Monday's crash is the worst airline disaster to happen in Indonesia since 1997 when 234 people died on a Garuda flight.

Indonesian investigators said their flight procedure recommendations to Boeing were based on how the flight crew responded to problems on the Bali to Jakarta flight.

Indonesian authorities on Sunday extended the search for another three days and a second black box recorder from wreckage of a brand new Boeing 737 MAX that slammed into the sea a week ago only minutes after it took off from Jakarta. The head of Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Committee, Soerjanto Tjahjono, told reporters in Jakarta on Monday that he was discussing the options for wider inspections with Boeing and his USA counterparts.

It was not immediately clear whether Boeing was planning to update the guidelines, though comments from Indonesian officials indicate they expect so.

The damage on a Lion Air jet that crashed into the sea, killing all 189 aboard, was revealed after data had been downloaded from the plane's flight data recorder, Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Committee (KNKT) chief Soerjanto Tjahjono told reporters on Monday.

Bloomberg News earlier reported that the plane manufacturer was alerting airlines that faulty readings from a flight-monitoring system can cause the planes to abruptly dive.

"We don't know yet where the problem lies, what fix has been done, what their reference books are, what components have been removed", said Nurcahyo Utomo, the agency's sub-committee head for air accidents.

An AOA sensor provides data about the angle at which wind is passing over the wings and tells pilots how much lift a plane is getting.

The 737 MAX 8 jet may pose a threat to passenger safety.

Recovery efforts are looking for the other "black box", the cockpit voice recorder, as investigators analyze the flight data recorder found last week.

The Boeing 737 MAX is a more fuel-efficient version of the manufacturer's popular single-aisle jet.

According to a technical log the Lion Air plane, which had only been in service a few months, suffered instrument problems the day before because of an "unreliable" airspeed reading. But the urgency of a fatal accident can trigger a flurry of such notices.

Aviation regulators such as the US Federal Aviation Administration and the European Aviation Safety Agency often follow such actions by mandating that carriers follow the bulletins.

To avoid having the problem repeat, pilots may deactivate the stabilizer trim system, according to The Air Current's explanation. One of the pilots had trimmed the plane to push the nose down while trying to climb after aborting a landing, the report said.

At a meeting on Monday, to address the grieving families of the victims, Tjahjono said that the plane did not explode mid-air and was intact when it plunged into the sea, with its engine's turbines running at high speed.

The incident which took place on October 29 resulted in the death of all 189 people on board.
