Boeing Issues Warning To Airlines

An official from Indonesia's transportation safety agency examines a turbine engine from the crashed Lion Air plane

Boeing has signalled there could be a problem with the flight control system of its 737 Max 8 jet after one of the new airliners crashed, killing 189 passengers.

Investigators who analyzed the flight data recorder after the October 29 crash uncovered the fault, the committee said.

National Transportation Safety Committee chairman Soerjanto Tjahjono said the damaged indicator was discovered after the data had been downloaded from the Boeing 787-MAX 8's data recorder that was recovered from the sea.

"We have started to examine the FDR and will continue to analyze it".

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

On that flight, from Bali to Jakarta, the two sensors disagreed. "It started to taxi onto the runway but was retracted into a parking mode", Satria told Arab News. All of this appears to have transpired in just 12 minutes, meaning the crew had very little time to assess the situation, figure out what was happening, and then taken the appropriate steps to correct it.

"There was some unusual noise coming from the engine and I could hear it because I was sitting in the window seat of row 22 near the wings", he said, adding that the plane's landing in Jakarta was not smooth either and bounced slightly as the tires touched the runway.

Sheriff: 10-year-old says she stomped head of baby in panic
Treu appeared via video in court Tuesday afternoon for an initial appearances on 11 counts, including four counts of homicide. Haylee's mother, Sara Jo Schneider, 32, was with the Girl Scout troop and was also hit and killed, officials said.

Tjahjono said Flight 610 was intact with its engines running when it slammed into the sea 13 minutes after takeoff. They fail occasionally, especially in bad weather at high altitude, when the tubes located under the plane's nose can become jammed with ice, preventing air from reaching the sensors.

As the 270-square-mile search for debris widened over the weekend, Indonesian authorities broadened a review of Lion Air's operations, including the airline's standard operating procedures and flight-crew qualifications.

"The Lion Air aircraft hit the water at high speed and it didn't break apart mid-air", said Tjahjono.

But he stood and bowed his head after angry and distraught family members demanded that Kirana - who with his brother Kusnan Kirana founded Lion Air in 1999 - identify himself.

The families of the victims were not so silent, however. After all, even if pilot reactions are proven to be contributing factors in this tragedy-responding inappropriately to the situation, for instance-that doesn't absolve aircraft manufacturers and the airlines of their responsibility to design systems that can minimize as much as possible precisely that risk of human error.

Divers have been retrieving bodies for days, and the search efforts continue. "We have flaws, but we [are] doing the best we can". "These are people's lives", he said, as he sought to choke back tears.

On Thursday (Nov 1), the SAR team found the flight data recorder (FDR) of the aircraft, and now the search focus was on another part of the aircraft's black box, namely, the Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR).

Well over 100 body bags have been retrieved, and each body bag could contain remains from more than one individual.
