Boeing signals flight control system problem may have contributed to 737 crash

Boeing’s first 737 MAX 8 rolls out of the final assembly building in Renton in December 2015. More than 200 MAXs are in service around the world Boeing to Issue Alert Its Planes Can Abruptly Dive During Flight - Report

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.

The FAA directive applies to about 250 Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft operating worldwide.

Indonesia's transportation safety committee said it had agreed with Boeing on procedures that the airplane manufacturer should distribute globally on how flight crews can deal with the sensor problems.

Lion Air blamed airport staff for the incident, which did not cause any casualties, Efe news reported. With its nose pitched down, the aircraft probably dived into the sea at high speed.

The black box recorder recovered from the plane showed the jet's airspeed indicator was faulty when it crashed and during three other flights, investigators said today.

But more importantly, the investigation-led by Indonesian authorities with the cooperation of Boeing and the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board-will determine what changes should happen to not only prevent the sensor failure from reoccurring, but hopefully also prevent such a failure from spiraling so horribly out of control even when it does happen.

The FAA has issued a new airworthiness directive (AD) on the Boeing 737 MAX after Lion Air flight JT610 crash investigators found the aircraft's angle of attack (AOA) sensors are capable of generating erroneous inputs, potentially making the aircraft hard for pilots to control.

In October, the tragic crash of Lion Air Flight JT610 brought the jet back to the forefront the public consciousness.

"The pilots had a battle on their hands for a few minutes", she said. 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. "They were fighting something". As of November 7, the DJPU has conducted in-situ ramp checks of aircraft that belong to Lion Air, Garuda Indonesia, Batik Air, Sriwijaya Air, NAM Air, Wings Air (Indonesia), and Indonesia AirAsia.

An aerodynamic stall is when the wings of an aircraft can't produce enough lift and the plane starts to dive.

A Boeing Co. warning to 737 Max operators around the globe provides the first clues about how bad data from an airflow sensor might have contributed to the deadly crash of an Indonesian airliner last week.

Ony Suryo Wibowo, another investigator, said that it was too early to say what caused the crash. The full investigation could take a year.

On Tuesday, Boeing issued a bulletin to all airlines and pilots who operate the 737 MAX.

The FAA grounded Boeing's entire 787 fleet in 2013 after lithium-ion batteries overheated and caught fire.

When contacted by FOX Business, Boeing declined to comment on the report. The company has sought to increase its production from 47 jets per month to 52 per month.

"We also plan to conduct a flight reconstruction to see the impact of the AOA sensor damage in the engineering simulator at the Boeing facility in Seattle". They are now combing the seas for the voice recorder. "So far, all the results are good and all are airworthy", Director of Aircraft Airworthiness and Operations, Captain Avirianto, said in a statement.

Pilots raise and lower the nose of Boeing jetliners by pushing and pulling on a yoke in the cockpit, which controls panels at the tail known as elevators. "Are the workers moving too fast to meet production deadlines?"

Still, Teal Group aerospace analyst Richard Aboulafia said the commercial passengers should not be nervous about getting on a 737 Max 8.

Some modern aircraft have systems created to correct the posture of the wings automatically to keep flying safely.
