Indonesia extends search for bodies from Lion Air crash

Indonesia extends search for bodies from Lion Air crash

The search for the Lion Air 737 that crashed last Monday killing 189 people has been extended after divers lost contact with the aircraft's second black box.

The aircraft are not used by Australia's two major airlines, Qantas and Virgin Australia.

Airlines using the 737 MAX include the Singapore Airlines offshoot SilkAir, Garuda Indonesia and Canada's WestJet, but none had received a bulletin from Boeing.

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.

"Angle of attack" refers to the angle between relative wind and a reference line on the plane - the sensors' goal is to ensure that air flows over an aircraft's wings, Bloomberg reported.

Bambang Sukandar, whose son was on the flight, said: "Lion Air said the problem was fixed, is it true the problem was cleared?"

Under the subject heading, the Boeing bulletin says: "Uncommanded Nose Down Stabilizer Trim Due to Erroneous Angle of Attack (AOA) During Manual Flight Only".

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.

A Boeing Co. warning to 737 Max operators around the globe provides the first clues about how bad data from an airflow sensor might have contributed to the deadly crash of an Indonesian airliner last week. There are now a little over 200 737 MAX jets in use.

"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.

Lion Air JT610 plunged into the Java Sea less than half an hour after taking off from Jakarta on a routine flight to Pangkal Pinang city. There were no survivors.

THE US Federal Aviation Administration has issued an emergency directive, warning of problems in the latest Boeing 737 MAX aircraft that could lead to pilots losing control of the planes. A preliminary report is expected at the end of the month.

Indonesian investigators, plane manufacturer Boeing and the US National Transportation Safety Board are working on a more specific inspection for Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes related to the airspeed problem, Tjahjono said.

Mr. Ramadhan had been a prosecutor in a district of the Bangka, where the plane would have landed.

"The pilot's success became our reference to give a recommendation to Boeing so they could issue an advice for other airlines to follow the same procedures if the same situation occurs", Soerjanto said.

Search teams have filled some 186 body bags with remains found after the devastating crash, but only 44 victims have been identified so far.

The head of Indonesia's Search and Rescue Agency, Basarnas, said Sunday that after initially hearing a "ping" from the CVR on Saturday, diving teams could no longer hear a signal from the device.

Body parts are still being recovered and searchers continue to hunt for the cockpit voice recorder. The bulletin emphasized existing procedures for correcting the plane when it reacts to the erroneous data.
