Loved ones farewelled in emotional service at Lion Air crash site

Boeing Co. says it has issued a safety bulletin that reiterates guidelines on how pilots should respond to erroneous data from an "angle of attack" sensor following last week's crash of a Boeing plane in Indonesia that killed 189 people.

The Lion Air crash was the first involving the type of plane, which airlines introduced into service a year ago.

The Boeing bulletin only reminds operators of the plane to emphasize procedures outlined in a checklist pilots are given to help navigate stabilizer issues. "One of them should have reacted to the airspeed indicator malfunction in his display", said Nurcahyo, confirming that the jet was in the pilot's control, set to manual.

One of the critical ways a plane determines if a stall is imminent is a measurement known as angle of attack, which is a calculation of the angle at which the wind is passing over the wings.

The Lion Air 737 Max 8 jetliner plummeted towards the Java Sea minutes after takeoff from Jakarta airport in Indonesia on October 29.

Investigators examine engine parts from the ill-fated Lion Air flight JT 610 at a port in Jakarta on November 7, 2018, after they were recovered from the bottom of the Java sea.

Indonesian investigators have recovered the plane's flight data recorder, which showed that the plane's airspeed indicator malfunctioned on its last four flights.

In a modern jet like the Boeing Max 8 that crashed, readings from airspeed sensors are processed by a computerized "flight management system" and sent to displays in the cockpit.

FDA approves opioid painkiller 1,000 times stronger than morphin
Experts worry that supplies of the drug will somehow make their way from doctors' offices and pharmacies to addicts. The FDA insists it is managing the opioid crisis and the new drug is needed by patients to manage pain.

Boeing 737 with 189 people aboard goes down into the Java Sea shortly after take-off; unclear if there are survivors.

He said the pilot had landed the plane safely on that occasion.

Soerjanto Tjahjono, head of the National Transportation Safety Committee, told the meeting that information downloaded from the jet's flight data recorder is consistent with reports that the plane's speed and altitude were erratic.

Aboulafia, the vice president of analysis at the consulting firm Teal Group, argues that it's more important to emphasize how pilots react to failures such as incorrect sensor readings than the failures themselves.

"The pilots had a battle on their hands for a few minutes", she said. The cause of the crash is still unclear. The head of Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Committee, Soerjanto Tjahjono, told reporters in Jakarta on Monday that he was discussing the options for wider inspections with Boeing and his USA counterparts. "This is what we do not know yet and we will find it out, ' he said".

The findings from the data recorder were announced just hours after distraught relatives confronted Lion Air's co-founder, Rusdi Kirana, during a meeting with investigators.

Certainly, Indonesian search and rescue officials had trouble locating the wreck, despite encountering a large amount of wreckage in the four days leading up to the discovery of the fuselage.

"Lion Air has failed", said a man who identified himself as the father of passenger Shandy Johan Ramadhan, a prosecutor in a district on the island where the flight was headed. Once that happens, it may try to right itself by pushing the nose down, reports the Straight Times.
