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. Those readings is the main suspected reason in the crash of a Boeing 737 Max from the Indonesian Lion Air. None of the 189 passengers survived after the aircraft was crashed in Java Sea last week.
Investigation performed by the Indonesian authorities has shown that a specific sensor had a defect, resulting in incorrect information about the air speed which is crucial for the plane automation.
This may led to a stall, where the wing loses its bearing force and the plane quickly falls out of the sky. In this situation pilots have to intervene and Boeing has put on paper how exactly.
