Boeing Issues Warning To Airlines

Indonesia to probe Lion Air after deadly plane crash

Indonesia to probe Lion Air after deadly plane crash

Searchers sort through debris from the Lion Air crash. No injuries have been reported. The Oct. 29 incident brings to eight the number of fatal crashes in the country's air transportation sector over the last 10 years.

Boeing has delivered 219 737 MAX jets to customers globally, with 4,564 orders for jets yet to be delivered.

JAKARTA-A crucial sensor was replaced on a Lion Air jet the day before it plunged into the Java Sea, and that sensor replacement may have exacerbated other problems with the plane, Indonesian investigators said Wednesday.

Ony Soerjo Wibowo assessed that a commercial aircraft could indeed experience technical failures despite having gone through periodic checks as the Lion Air crash suggests.

Mr Nurcahyo Utomo, the KNKT sub-committee head for air accidents, said the angle of attack reading - which shows the angle at which the wind is passing over the wing - affects calculation of aircraft speed. If pilots aren't careful, they can cause severe nose-down trim settings that make it impossible to level a plane.

The ministry had previously removed several Lion Air executives and technicians, saying they were needed to help authorities in the investigation.

Marijuana Legalized in Michigan, Other States Next?
When Gallop began polling Americans about the marijuana legalization in 1969, just 12 percent of respondents supported the issue. Proposition No. 2 in Utah passed with about 53 percent of voters for the measure and about 47 percent against it.

Boeing said in its statement that it had issued an operations manual bulletin (OMB) to 737 Max operators that advised flight crews to turn to existing procedures "where there is erroneous input from an AOA sensor".

When contacted by FOX Business, Boeing declined to comment on the report.

The bulletin from Boeing will alert airlines that erroneous readings from a flight-monitoring system can cause the planes to abruptly dive, said the person, who asked not to be named discussing details of the manufacturer's plans.

"To underscore our commitment to safety, Southwest is issuing communication to highlight the existing procedures to Southwest pilots that operate our 737 Max 8 fleet", the company said. "And yes, we now have seven Max 9's in operation. there are no plans to alter our 737 Max operations".

USA aviation regulators said they are drafting an order requiring that airlines follow Boeing's instructions. There were no survivors.

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. A preliminary report is expected at the end of the month.

Rooney Set For England Comeback Apperance At Wembley
News of a recall for Rooney comes after he single-handedly turned D.C United's season around following his move across the pond. Across a 13-year global career, Rooney represented England at three World Cups and three European Championships.

He said the pilot had landed the plane safely on that occasion.

Representatives of 737 MAX operators, Singapore Airlines Ltd offshoot SilkAir, Garuda Indonesia and Canada's WestJet Ltd, said they had not yet received a bulletin from Boeing.

However, this new reminder from Boeing raises questions about the pilots' actions, how the flight crews are trained and if the maintenance that was performed was adequate. This far, police have been able to identify 14 victims from the nearly 140 body bags of human remains retrieved from the Java Sea.

Indonesia's National Search and Rescue Agency, Basarnas, said that it had extended the search operations by three days until Wednesday.

Divers have recovered one of Lion Air Flight 610′s two black boxes, the flight data recorder.

The Boeing bulletin says it is possible that the system will continue to put the aircraft nose down, right up to the limit, unless it is deactivated.
