Indonesian accident investigators said an airspeed indicator of a Boeing Co 737 MAX plane that crashed last week was damaged for its last four flights, but United States authorities responded cautiously to suggestions of fleet-wide checks.

Indonesian accident investigators said on Monday that an airspeed indicator on the crashed jet was damaged for its last four flights, but USA authorities responded cautiously to suggestions of fleet-wide checks.

Virgin Australia is anxiously waiting for the outcome of flight JT610's investigation see if any changes need to be made for its order of Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft.

The directive comes a little more than a week after Lion Air pilots operating a 737 MAX 8 lost contact with Soekarno-Hatta's air traffic control (ATC) and crashed into the Java Sea, north of Indonesia's Java Island.

American said they had "received the bulletin from Boeing and we are reviewing".

Boeing Co.is preparing to send a bulletin to operators of its new 737 Max models warning that erroneous readings from a flight-monitoring system can cause the planes to aggressively dive, said a person familiar with the matter.

The plane was on the runway when it happened, and one of its wings clipped the pole.

An angle-of-attack sensor that had been removed before that previous flight has been brought to the investigators and will be examined in the US, the Indonesian officials said.

"It's too early to tell if the sensors caused the accident", said John Goglia, an aviation safety expert and former member of the National Transportation Safety Board. If the angle of attack is too high, then its speed decreases and the aircraft could enter an aerodynamic stall.

Earlier this week, Indonesian officials hinted that airspeed indicators played a role in the deadly October 29 crash that killed all 189 people on board. Chairman Soerjanto Tjahjono said the airspeed indicator and sensor problems are related.

The National Search and Rescue Agency said 10 intact bodies as well as body parts have been recovered.

The investigation continues to search for remains and to find the important cockpit voice recorder. But the plane's computers will resume trying to dive as soon as they release the switch, the Boeing bulletin said.

"We don't know yet where the problem lies, what fix has been done, what their reference books are, what components have been removed", said Nurcahyo Utomo, the KNKT sub-committee head for air accidents. It has been expanding aggressively in Southeast Asia, a fast-growing region of more than 600 million people.
