Boeing is said close to issuing warning on 737 Max after crash

Indonesia to probe Lion Air after deadly plane crash Lion Air jet's airspeed indicator malfunctioned on four flights

Indonesian investigators, the plane's manufacturer, Boeing, and the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board are formulating a more specific inspection for Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes related to the airspeed problem, Mr. Tjahjono said. That sensor is meant to maintain airflow over a plane's wings but if it malfunctions can lead to an aerodynamic stall - which can cause aircraft to abruptly dive.

The Boeing alert to 737 MAX operators to follow the manual when erroneous data problems are encountered from flight sensors raises more questions than it answers in relation to the Lion Air crash on Monday, October 29.

The revelation came after data was downloaded from the plane's flight data recorder (an orange device known as a black box), said Soerjanto Tjahjono, head of Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Committee (KNKT).

The plane maker said local aviation officials believed pilots might have been given wrong information by the plane's automated systems before the fatal crash. The plane went into a sudden dive minutes after takeoff, which the pilots were able to recover from.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has called on all airlines to follow Boeing's advice after Lion Air Flight 610 crashed into the Java Sea last month. 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.

Boeing did not respond to a request for a comment by CNN. The cockpit voice recorder has not been located.

Bloomberg had reported earlier that Boeing was set to issue a warning to companies using 737 Max airplanes about flight-information systems.

Aviation analyst Dudi Sudibyo said the cockpit display issue could include a speed-and-altitude glitch reported in the doomed jet the day before it crashed.

As a result of an investigation into the crash the jet manufacturer is said to be preparing a bulletin to be sent to operators of the 737 jets warning about faulty cockpit readings that could cause a dive.

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

The 737 MAX 8 jet may pose a threat to passenger safety. That last step appears to be what the Lion Air pilots didn't do, perhaps because they couldn't recall the procedure or they weren't fully aware of what precisely was happening.

"There was some unusual noise coming from the engine and I could hear it because I was sitting in the window seat of row 22 near the wings", he said, adding that the plane's landing in Jakarta was not smooth either and bounced slightly as the tires touched the runway.

Divers have pulled the plane's flight data recorder from the water, but are still hunting for the cockpit voice recorder- a key device that could provide clues to what caused the nearly brand-new plane to plunge into the sea.

PREMIUM Indonesia has been shocked by the plane crash involving Lion Air flight JT610. In December 2014, an AirAsia flight from Surabaya to Singapore plunged into the sea, killing all 162 on board.
