Lion Air jet in another accident, a week after deadly crash

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

Lion Air Investigation Continues

Both Boeing and the FAA are continuing to assist Indonesian officials in investigating the accident.

The jet's airspeed indicator malfunctioned on its last four flights, and that problem was related to the sensor issue, said Soerjanto Tjahjono, chairman of Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Committee, on Wednesday. The AD now affects 246 total Boeing 737 MAX aircraft in service globally.

The Boeing's 737 Completion and Delivery Center in Zhoushan, East China's Zhejiang Province, which is jointly built with its Chinese partner, the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China, will be put into operation in December and deliver its first plane, the 737 Max, according to a statement the company sent to the Global Times on Tuesday. Boeing didn't recommend new inspections or other action for operators.

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. In short they have to accommodate everyone from the best trained pilots in the world to the worst.

All 189 people on board Flight 610 died when the new Boeing 737 MAX 8 crashed into the sea on October 29, 13 minutes after taking off from Jakarta on a short flight to Pangkal Pinang on the Indonesian island of Bangka.

Volkswagen has succeeded in merging the practical advantages of the Tarok Concept with a lifestyle-oriented design. Speaking of the bed, the Tarok's defining feature is the variable loading area that communicates with the cabin.

On that flight, from Bali to Jakarta, the pilot's and co-pilot's sensors disagreed. The device was replaced in Bali after pilots reported a problem with airspeed reading, the Indonesian transportation safety regulator said Wednesday.

A Lion Air plane has smashed into an lamp post before take-off just a week after one of the airline's jets crashed in Indonesia killing 189 people.

Another reason behind Boeing's plant in Zhoushan is the 25 percent tariffs China imposed on certain US-made jets, including the Boeing 737 aircraft.

The Boeing 737 MAX is a more fuel-efficient version of the manufacturer's bestselling single-aisle 737 series. But the urgency of a fatal accident can trigger a flurry of such notices.

Service bulletins can be followed by airworthiness directives to airlines by the Federal Aviation Administration, giving the recommendations extra weight.

Major European film company's Twitter account hacked to promote Bitcoin scam
After compromising the verified accounts, the scammers changed the name and profile picture to impersonate Tesla's CEO. In fact, scams became so frequent on Twitter that Musk himself was briefly banned from the social media network.

The bulletin says: "In the event of erroneous AOA data, the pitch trim system can trim the stabilizer nose down in increments lasting up to 10 seconds".

Pilots raise and lower the nose of Boeing jetliners by pushing and pulling on a yoke in the cockpit, which controls panels at the tail known as elevators.

Further aggravating the situation would be the fact that the trim tabs would have likely eventually reached their fully deflected position-that is, positioned all the way down-so that when the pilots pulled back on the controls to try to level off, it would have been almost impossible to do so.
