Indonesia's Lion Air plane crashes into pole in new accident

Parts of an engine of the ill-fated Lion Air flight JT 610 are recovered from the sea during search operations in the Java Sea

The airworthiness directive covers all 737-8 and 737-9 aircraft and is similar to a service bulletin issued by Boeing, after the manufacturer conducted an analysis in the wake of the fatal Lion Air crash on October 29.

The incident comes as Boeing issued a warning to airlines about how to address incorrect cockpit readings as investigators probe what happened before Lion Air Flight 610 plunged into the Java Sea, killing 189 people.

Representatives of 737 Max operators, Singapore Airlines offshoot SilkAir, Garuda Indonesia and Canada's WestJet, said they had not yet received a bulletin from Boeing, Reuters reports.

The plane is the latest generation of Boeing's workhorse narrowbody aircraft, with more than 200 delivered since it entered service a year ago and a total of 4,700 orders placed by airlines around the world.

Lion Air said it attended to the problem in accordance with Boeing procedures.

Indonesia has not formally requested fleet-wide checks on 737 MAX jets and none are planned pending more data, a person familiar with matter said, on condition of anonymity.

One of the puzzling things about the accident is that the plane was flying in clear skies during daylight, so pilots should have been able to handle the issues they faced with airspeed and erroneous sensors, Cox said.

Indonesia's Ministry of Transportation yesterday said it would be investigating the cause of the incident. If the angle of attack is too high, then its speed decreases and the aircraft could enter an aerodynamic stall.

Boeing is preparing to send a warning to all the operators that have taken delivery of its new 737 Max aircraft, according to an anonymous source cited by Bloomberg.

Aircraft and engine manufacturers routinely send bulletins to air carriers noting safety measures and maintenance actions they should take, majority relatively routine.

"We have instructed the airport inspector to affirm the airline abide by the regulation and give compensation for the flight delay to the passengers", he noted.

The passengers on the JT-633 flight to Jakarta were moved to a second plane and arrived four hours late at 11.50pm.

Rescuers are looking for the cockpit voice recorder, which will help explain what caused the crash.

Also, Birgenair Flight 301 crashed after blocked pitot tubes caused problems with the autopilot leading to the flight crew making a series of critical errors that led to the tragic accident. He said a team had been deployed to examine the plane.

Indonesian officials said on Wednesday they would extend the search by three days. There were more than 180 people on board.
