Boeing Issues Safety Warning on 737 Max After Lion Air Crash

Soerjanto Tjahjono, chairman of the National Transport Safety Committee, told media that that airspeed indicator malfunctions on the jet's last four flights, and that this issue was intertwined with the AOA sensor issue. If the angle of attack is too high, then its speed decreases and the aircraft could enter an aerodynamic stall.

Lion - always been dogged by safety problems - has said the Boeing 737-Max 8 suffered a technical issue on the flight just prior to its deadly crash Monday and that it was fixed.

The latest information released by investigators still doesn't answer why the pilots on three previous flights were able to handle the problem while the crew on October 29 ended up diving at high speed into the sea, said John Cox, president of consulting company Safety Operating Systems and a former airline pilot.

The new information about Lion Air Flight 610 raises multiple questions investigators will want to examine on the pilots' actions, how flight crews were trained and whether the maintenance performed on the system was adequate, said Roger Cox, a former NTSB investigator. Indonesian officials said they have downloaded the data from a black box recorder for Lion Air flight 610 which crashed into Java sea last week while at least 105 body bags containing parts of passengers have been handed to the national police hospital in Jakarta for identification. The investigation will also reveal what the airline knew, in the wake of what appears to be no fewer than four incidents in total of the same failure in the previous flights, why its fixes weren't sufficient to prevent the accident, and why this crew wasn't reminded of the procedures after the previous three incidents.

Aircraft and engine manufacturers routinely send bulletins to air carriers noting safety measures and maintenance actions they should take, majority relatively routine. Its flight crew had requested permission to return to the airport several minutes after taking off.

USA aviation regulators said they are drafting an order requiring that airlines follow Boeing's instructions. Lion Air declined to comment.

It seems patently obvious to say that such situations shouldn't happen in this day and age-and clearly the investigation is still in its earliest stage-but it is troubling to see something so deadly transpire in the most modern aircraft in the Boeing fleet. "If there are urgent findings to be delivered, we will convey them to the operators and to the manufacturer", he said, according to AP.

Air Canada announced last December that its 737 Max aircraft had just started operating and was carrying passengers between Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto and Montreal.

Indonesia's search and rescue agency on Wednesday extended the search effort for a second time, saying it will continue until Sunday.

"If you were driving down the interstate and the speedometer failed, would you expect to crash the auto?" said John Cox, a former airline pilot and now a safety consultant.

Divers have recovered one of the two "black boxes" - the flight data recorder - but are still looking for the cockpit voice recorder, in the hope it will shed more light on the cause of the accident.

The Lion Air crash is the worst airline disaster in Indonesia since 1997, when 234 people died on a Garuda flight near Medan.
