U.S. emergency directive after Boeing jet crash in Indonesia

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

Footage has emerged of a damaged Lion Air plane after it struck a pole on the runway, just a week after the Indonesian airline's Boeing 737 crashed killing all 189 people on board. More than a week after the Lion Air 737 plane crashed claiming the lives of 189 people, another plane has been involved in an accident during take-off yesterday. The FAA, which regulates the USA aviation industry, hasn't received any reports of airspeed issues occurring on the model in the US, said a person familiar with the agency's reviews.

The US planemaker said investigators looking into the Lion Air crash had found that one of the "angle of attack" sensors on the aircraft had provided erroneous data.

A spokesperson for Boeing wouldn't disclose whether the directive was issued to operators of all Boeing aircraft, or just those who fly 737 MAX 8 planes - the same model as Flight 610.

Boeing said the "angle of attack" sensor, which identifies if a plane is about to stall, was faulty on the doomed flight. Simply put, it means that if there is an erroneous AOA input-one that indicates the aircraft has a high AOA and so is close to a stall-the aircraft system would respond by automatically bringing the aircraft nose down so as to increase the airspeed and prevent a stall.

"There are some things that we ask for explanation and some that we ask to be removed, and there has been an agreement between the NTSC and Boeing to release a new procedure to all Boeing 737 MAX users in the world", he said. "Is this fatal? NTSC (National Transportation Safety Committee) wants to explore this", he said.

Boeing Co. said on Wednesday it had issued a safety bulletin reminding pilots how to handle erroneous data from a key sensor in the wake of last week's crash in Indonesia. Boeing has more than 4,500 orders for the airliners, which feature larger engines, more aerodynamic wings and an upgraded cockpit with larger glass displays.

Moments earlier, the pilots radioed a request to return to Jakarta to land, but never turned back toward the airport, according to Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Committee and flight-track data.

The angle-of-attack sensor is meant to measure the angle between air flow and a reference line on the frame or wings so that they maintain lift. In addition, a system known as elevator trim can be changed to prompt nose-up or nose-down movement.

Investigation on the incident would be conducted by Inspector of Airworthiness and Aircraft Operation, Airport Inspector, and Aviation Safety Inspector in a bid to find out the cause and issue follow-up steps to be taken.
