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

Boeing has issued a new warning to all pilots flying its 737 MAX aircraft, the model of the recently crashed Lion Air flight JT610 from Jakarta, Indonesia.

USA aviation regulators said they are drafting an order requiring that airlines follow Boeing's instructions. They have departed using a different aircraft registration PK-LHM. The FAA said "this condition, if not addressed, could cause the flight crew to have difficulty controlling the airplane and lead to excessive nose-down attitude, significant altitude loss and possible impact with terrain".

Experts say the Boeing notice could be about the "angle of attack", which is the angle of the wing relative to oncoming air stream, a measure that indicates if a plane is likely to stall. A separate procedure involving a specific sequence of actions can be used to disengage the sensor from feeding information to the plane's computer system to address the issue for the duration of a flight.

A plane owned by low-priced Indonesian airline Lion Air has torn a wing on a runway in Indonesia just days after one of its flights crashed into the Java Sea, leaving 189 dead. There were no survivors.

The review came a day after a Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft operated by Lion Air crashed into the sea shortly after taking off from Jakarta.

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.

On Monday Nov. 5, CNN published an update on the crash investigation from Capt. Nurcahyo Utomo of Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Committee (KNKT) noting that the FDR review also concluded that the aircraft's airspeed indicator had been malfunctioning on four consecutive flights prior to the crash.

"The pilot only followed the instruction and directions from the Aircraft Movement Control (AMC) officer", Lion Air spokesman Danang Mandala Prihantoro said, the National reports.

Moments earlier, the pilots radioed a request to return to Jakarta to land, but never turned back toward the airport, according to Indonesia's safety commission and flight-tracking data.

A police official said 186 body bags containing human remains had been retrieved and 44 victims identified after forensic examination.

Indonesian officials said on Wednesday they would extend the search by three days. They are now combing the seas for the voice recorder.
