Boeing Issues Bulletin for 737 Max After Indonesia Jet Crash

The recorder shows the jet's last four flights all had an airspeed indicator problem. If the problem isn't fixed, it can cause planes to simply fall out of the sky. According to NBC News, the warning revolves around what pilots should do if the plane gives an erroneous reading from a sensor.

"They should have been completely engaged in what was going on inside that cockpit, and any kind of warning that came up, they would have been wise to pay attention to it", Curtis said.

Alon Soetanto told TVOne the plane dropped suddenly several times in the first few minutes of its flight.

The transport ministry is coordinating with airport authorities, navigation operators and airlines among others to ensure airworthiness at all airports in Indonesia is well maintained, according to Transport Minister Budi Karya Sumadi.

"This is a preventative measure.(The accident) is a very expensive lesson for us".

Civil Aviation authorities in the United States and Europe were also being consulted for their help in the probe, he added.

While planes like the Max fly mostly on autopilot, pilots can fly manually if they're dealing with unusual situations like the malfunctions that occurred on the Lion Air flight. "Imagine if you were in our position", said Najib Fuquoni, a relative of a victim, demanding an independent investigation into the crash.

"We are not flawless human beings", he said, sobbing. "We are trying the best we can with all we have. we are not giving up".

The 737 MAX is Boeing's newest and most advanced aircraft series, as well as the company's bestseller.

All were found to be airworthy although two required repairs for "minor" problems. That last step appears to be what the Lion Air pilots didn't do, perhaps because they couldn't recall the procedure or they weren't fully aware of what precisely was happening. It has also raised questions about airline safety in Indonesia, whose airlines were banned from European and United States airspace until recently.

Boeing Co. said on Wednesday it had issued a safety bulletin reminding pilots how to handle erroneous data from a key sensor in the wake of last week's Indonesian jetliner crash. The information can be critical in preventing the plane from stalling.

A relative sprinkles flowers for victims in the crashed Lion Air flight 610 aboard an Indonesia Navy ship in the waters where the aeroplane is believed to have crashed in Tanjung Karawang, Indonesia, on Tuesday. There were no survivors.

Lion Air reportedly knew that the plane - a brand-new Boeing 737 MAX 8, which the low-priced carrier had been using for only a few months - had malfunctioned on its second-to-last flight. A preliminary report is expected at the end of the month. Due to the force of the crash into the sea, so far no bodies have been found intact.

On Monday, November 5, Indonesian officials arranged for a meeting between the families of the victims of downed Lion Air flight JT-610 as well as the search and rescue officials investigating the accident.

Ony Soerjo Wibowo assessed that a commercial aircraft could indeed experience technical failures despite having gone through periodic checks as the Lion Air crash suggests.
