Fiancee fulfils Lion Air victim's last wish, SE Asia News & Top Stories

General Manager of Lion Air's Angkasa Training Center Captain Dibyo Soesilo gestures as he explains the general training curriculum to the media at the airline group's training center near Jakarta Indonesia

Now, investigators are focusing their efforts on figuring out if the plane crashed because of an update to a safety system that was created to pull the plane out of a unsafe stall, The New York Times reported.

"This is not about silos and layers of bureaucracy, this is about knowing your airplane", Tajer said.

The FAA, which certified the plane, said in a statement it couldn't comment on the matter while the investigation in Indonesia remains open.

Heartbreaking photos show shoes belonging to Lion Air crash victims piled up at the recovery site. In the case of Lion Air flight 610, a sensor that measures which way the plane's nose is pointing apparently fed erroneous data into the system, something that could have sent the plane into a nose dive.

Because the Max 8 is a reworking of the 737, pilots do not need to undergo extensive specialised training in order to fly the latest model. Pictured, the first Boeing 737 MAX 9 airliner at the company's factory Renton, Washington, March 7, 2017. We are confident in the safety of the 737 MAX.

The fiancee of a man who was killed in the Lion Air plane crash last month as he flying home to get married has posed for her wedding pictures alone after her husband-to-be joked she should wear her gown without him if he was late to their nuptials.

As speculation continues as to whether the flight-control system was indeed to blame for the fatal crash in Indonesia, authorities are still searching for the aircraft's black box, which could contain information on what exactly was going on in the cockpit at the time of the crash.

Recovery of the CVR could give vital insights into the actions the pilots took at the time of the crash, but as the location signal was lost around a week ago, it's unlikely it will ever be found.

California Wildfires: Malibu residents reflect on Woolsey Fire
People have been using social media to share images of their lost animals around the internet, in the hope of finding them. Further south, fires have reached the beach resort of Malibu, with a "major disaster" now declared across the state.


"Is there anything else on the MAX Boeing has not told the operators?"

Jon Weaks, a 737 captain and president of the pilots union at Southwest, said he couldn't recall a similar omission in a Boeing operating manual.

Pilots are drilled on how to cut power to the so-called trim system if the plane starts to dive or climb on its own, but that procedure was never linked directly to a malfunctioning angle-of-attack sensor in training or the documentation.

In one image of herself with Mr Paratama's sister, she said: "Thanks for giving me a sister, who is so great, smart, merciful and kind, just like you".

"Because the Max is a derivative aircraft, we doubt that this is a difficult-to-correct technical issue as the battery fire early in the 787's life, appeared to be", Cowen analyst Cai von Rumohr said in a note.

The procedure, like with this incident is to deal, was the pilot of the Lion Air flight, apparently, is not known: the Boeing published this until after the accident in a so-called Operations Manual Bulletin.

Pilots say it is important that they have the power to manually override automated systems.
