Boeing explains sensor after crash 737 Lion Air

zhuhai - Aircraft manufacturer Boeing has explained to airlines in a memo how pilots can cope with a situation in which certain sensors deliver incorrect data in an airplane. The reason is the crash of a Boeing 737 Max from the Indonesian Lion Air. None of the 189 occupants were recovered alive after the aircraft was deposited in the Java Sea last week.

Research by the Indonesian authorities has shown that a specific sensor had a defect, resulting in incorrect information about the air flows entering the system.

This can lead to a cover, also known as a stall, where the wing loses its bearing force and the appliance quickly falls or falls out of the sky. Pilots then have to intervene and Boeing has said on paper how exactly.
