Lion Air Investigation Continues

Parts of an engine of the ill-fated Lion Air flight JT 610 are recovered from the sea during search operations in the Java Sea

Just a week after a Lion Air passenger plane crashed into the Java Sea killing all the 189 people on board, another jet of the budget carrier has been involved in an accident. It's still possible the FAA may order the Chicago-based planemaker to redesign the equipment or software as investigators piece together details of the October 29 accident, which killed 189 people.

The Wall Street Journal reported that United States aviation regulators also meant to issue safety warnings about potentially suspect flight-control software.

Indonesian investigators said this week the plane had an air-speed indicator problem on the doomed flight and on three previous journeys.

Under some circumstances, a 737 MAX jet could automatically push down its nose if it detects that a stall is possible, based on the angle of attack.

Boeing issued a statement on an update to the 737 MAX flight manual on Tuesday, Nov. 6, a day after investigators discovered JT610's faulty airspeed indicator.

Airline safety experts said pilots are trained to handle a plane safely if those crucial sensors fail and backup systems are generally in place as well. The information can be critical in preventing the plane from stalling.

Things will begin with the inaugural Juvenile Turf Sprint, a $1 million event to be run over 5 1/2 furlongs. She travels for fun and she just has that one burst of energy'. "When I asked her, she exploded for home".


The two-month-old plane went into a sudden dive minutes after take-off, which the pilots were able to recover from.

The committee has said they were dealing with an "erroneous airspeed indication".

"The investigation into Lion Air flight 610 is ongoing and Boeing continues to cooperate fully and provide technical assistance at the request and under the direction of government authorities investigating the accident", it said.

There are also procedures for pilots to follow in the event of missing data from damaged sensors on the fuselage skin, but it remains unclear how much time the crew of Flight JT610 had to respond because they were only a few thousand feet in the air. The FAA said it was mandating that airlines follow the Boeing bulletin. "Is this fatal? NTSC (National Transportation Safety Committee) wants to explore this", he said.

According to USA Today, Boeing has delivered more than 200 models of the Boeing 737 and has received more than 4,500 orders. If there is an "uncommanded nose-down stabilizer trim" on the Max, pilots can counteract it by pushing a switch on their control yoke. The "angle of attack" is the angle of the airplane or its wings compared with oncoming air or wind. "The AMC officer is a person from the airport management and is being examined by the relevant party", the statement says.
