Boeing issues advice over sensors after Indonesia crash

Boeing to Issue Alert Its Planes Can Abruptly Dive During Flight - Report Boeing to issue safety warning to pilots for 737 Max jets: Report

Boeing said that investigations by authorities in Indonesia where Lion Air flight 610 crashed last month had indicated problems with an "angle of attack" sensor.

The warning follows preliminary findings from the Lion Air crash that the angle-of-attack (AOA) sensor malfunctioned.

The Chicago-based manufacturer said investigators probing the crash of Flight JT610, in which all 189 on board were killed, had found that one of the "angle of attack" sensors on the brand new plane had provided incorrect readings.

The bulletin cautions operators of the 737 Max that erroneous readings from one of the plane's sensors can cause the aircraft to enter into a sudden dive, Bloomberg reported.

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

It was a terrible display from a side who have not won in 15 games, including five matches under Henry. Porto are on the brink of qualification from Group D after a 4-1 win at home to Lokomotiv Moscow .

On November 6, Boeing said it had issued an Operations Manual Bulletin (OMB) directing operators to existing flight crew procedures to address circumstances where there is erroneous input from an AOA sensor. Boeing is still investigating why the sensor malfunctioned but in the meantime, pilots are being warned to take extra safety precautions when flying those models.

"We don't know what the crew knew and didn't know yet", Cox said. "The nose is turning itself down and they are having to fight it".

"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".

The planemaker said local aviation officials believed pilots may have been given wrong information by the plane's automated systems before the fatal crash.

"Whenever appropriate, Boeing, as part of its usual processes, issues bulletins or makes recommendations regarding the operation of its aircraft".

If nothing had been done to stop the thinning, the world would have destroyed two-thirds of its ozone layer by 2065, he warned. The hole reaches its peak in September and October and disappears by late December until the next Southern Hemisphere spring.

There are a total of 49 Boeing 737 Max planes in service across the USA, including 26 737 Max 8 planes in service at Southwest Airlines, 16 at American Airlines and seven Max 9 planes at United Airlines.

737 MAX passenger plane slammed into the sea on October 29, only minutes after takeoff from Jakarta en route to Bangka island near Sumatra.

Flight JT610 sped up as it suddenly lost altitude and then vanished from radar 12 minutes after take-off, with witnesses saying the single-aisle jet plunged into the water.

The captain and first officer flying from Bali to Jakarta the night before the crash had indicators displaying differences in angle of 20 degrees, KNKT said, but that flight landed safely despite the issues in the air.

The pilots, who were dealing with an erroneous airspeed indication, had radioed a request to return to Jakarta to land, but never turned back toward the airport, according to Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Committee and flight-track data.

Batik Air passenger Romidi Karnawan told CNN Indonesia that his flight to Jakarta, which was scheduled to take off at around 6pm, was delayed for about an hour.
