Boeing Failed To Disclose Dangerous Feature Suspected Of Being Behind Fatal Lion Air Crash

||| @aconvict | Twitter/Beawiharta |||

Boeing is accused of withholding information about potential problems with one of their newest features. Investigators suspect the feature played a role in the fatal crash of Lion Air flight JT610 which crashed into the ocean just minutes after takeoff from Jakarta killing all 189 aboard. Safety experts investigating the crash, midlevel FAA officials, and pilots all agree with the current working theory.

Investigators say the problem lies with the automated stall-prevention system Boeing added to its 737 MAX 8 and MAX 9. The system is supposed to help the flight's pilots avoid mistakenly stalling the aircraft by raising the nose too quickly. The problem lies when the system malfunctions and forces the nose downward unexpectedly so strongly that the flight goes into an unrecoverable nosedive.

A spokeswoman from Boeing issued an email statement saying, "We are taking every measure to fully understand all aspects of this incident, working closely with the investigating team and all regulatory authorities involved. The system is supposed to help the aircraft from raising the nose, but it may turn out it can actually force the nose down "unexpectedly and so strongly" that the pilots are unable to recover even when taking full manual control.

A safety report added that the plane could dive or crash leading to an almost guaranteed death of all aboard. A bulletin was issued to airlines which revealed the possible fault in a bulletin to airlines but not until about a week after the Lion Air flight JT610 nose-dived into the ocean.

The Lion Air Boeing 737 flight JT610 took off from Jakarta's Soekarno-Hatta airport and immediately the pilot requested to turn around due to a mechanical issue. The control tower cleared the pilot to return to the ground but something had caused the pilot to think that the problem had abated and he no longer needed to land the aircraft. It was a fatal mistake. The pilot continued onward to his destination which was only supposed to be an hour away at Depati airport.

Devastated family members waited at Depati airport for their loved ones who would never arrive. Within hours, debris was being picked out of the ocean by rescuers and volunteer boats. On top of the Lion Air crash, last week another Boeing, this one a 757-200, also had a problem shortly after takeoff. The Fly Jamaica flight had a problem with its left-side door.

When you consider the number of flights which occur without a problem, the odds of dying in a plane crash are very low. But one thing is for sure, it hasn't been a good month of publicity for Boeing. It remains to be seen if any lawsuits will arise as a result of Boeing's failure to disclose the flaw.

Why bother wearing a facemask if you dont cover your face with it? As laughable as filipino nurses who dont cover their nose with mask.
