Lion Air jet in another accident, a week after deadly crash

Boeing to issue safety warning to pilots for 737 Max jets: Report

Boeing to issue safety warning to pilots for 737 Max jets: Report

The jet's airspeed indicator malfunctioned on its last four flights, and that problem was related to the sensor issue, said Soerjanto Tjahjono, chairman of Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Committee, on Wednesday.

The directive states that, if the "angle of attack" information received by the flight control system is too high, there is potential for repeated nose-down commands because the system believes the aircraft is going to go into an aerodynamic stall.

False readings from the sensor can cause the aircraft to pitch downward in an attempt to avoid a stall when the plane is not being flown on autopilot. The Boeing 737 MAX is a more fuel-efficient version of the manufacturer's best-selling single-aisle 737 series.

Boeing said it had issued an "Operations Manual Bulletin" addressing flight crew procedures in cases where there is "erroneous input from an [Angle of Attack] sensor". The plane went into a sudden dive but the pilots were able to recover control and made a decision to fly on to Jakarta at a lower-than-normal altitude. He said a team had been deployed to examine the plane. If they can't figure out what's going on with their aircraft instantly and without uncertainty, and if the aircraft itself can't do so, then we still have a very long way to go. It takes a lot of effort to keep it from diving.

"I would definitely be looking at the man-machine interface and how pilots respond", said Cox, a former airline pilot who flew earlier versions of the 737 and specialized at the NTSB in cockpit actions.

Aviation systems must account for possibility of misinterpretations of situations and foggy memories of procedures outlined in the manuals that come with these huge, complicated, and incredibly sensitive vehicles.

Privately, Pellegrini has been trying to coax the best out of the player they called "Neymar's younger brother" back in Brazil.

Boeing said it is continuing to work with the Indonesian investigation. "I'm not aware of any other operator having this problem".

Boeing says only 200 of its latest 737 MAX jets are in service around the world.

Boeing said on Wednesday it had issued a safety bulletin reminding pilots how to handle erroneous data from a sensor in the wake of the Lion Air crash. It was found that on the flight that crashed in Asia this sensor was giving off incorrect data, meaning the pilots weren't flying in the right position.

Problems were reported on a Lion Air jet that crashed into the sea off Jakarta even after technicians replaced a sensor on board the aircraft, investigators said.
