"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.

"When there was a problem, the pilot would write it down and the mechanic would do (a repair).Then the plane would be declared airworthy".

"We are formulating, with NTSB (US National Transportation safety board) and Boeing, detailed inspections regarding the airspeed indicator", he said.

"This is a preventative measure.(The accident) is a very expensive lesson for us".

"I'm still of the opinion that losing airspeed on the airplane shouldn't result in losing the airplane", Cox said. "One belongs to the pilot in command and one belongs to the co-pilot". This issue is said to arise only during manual flight.

Boeing is preparing to send a warning to all the operators that have taken delivery of its new 737 Max aircraft, according to an anonymous source cited by Bloomberg.

"The investigation into Lion Air Flight 610 is ongoing and Boeing continues to cooperate fully and provide technical assistance at the request and under the direction of government authorities investigating the accident", the statement said.

Lion Air black box found.

Rescue team members on an inflatable raft head to the location where Lion Air flight JT610 crashed into the sea, in the north coast of Karawang regency, West Java province Indonesia, on Tuesday.

According to the Tribune, a doctor who examined the baby determined that the injuries were not accidental. The Star Tribune is not identifying the girl because her case likely will be referred to juvenile court.

Mr Tjahjono said based on initial analysis the "engine was running with fairly high speed" when it hit the water.

Malfunctioning airspeed indicators have factored in several high-profile crashes, including two more than 20 years ago involving Boeing 757s. "This is what we do not know yet and we will find it out", he said.

Aviation experts from multiple countries are analyzing the data to determine exactly how the aircraft performed during the flight. Searchers are still trying to locate the cockpit voice recorder.

Safety investigators said that pilots on the plane were dealing with inaccurate airspeed readings and asked to return to the airport just before the crash.

The plane's altitude was mostly about 5,000 feet (1,524 meters), but rose and fell repeatedly within a range of a few hundred feet, according to flight-tracking data from FlightRadar24.

Capt. Daniel Putut Kuncoro Adi, managing director of Lion Group, said that all information had been handed over to Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Commission, and he could not answer any questions about the fault because of a nondisclosure agreement signed to accommodate the investigation. He maintained that the agency is now studying it based on the pieces of evidence they managed to recover so far that includes the plane's flight data recorder (FDR).

Anugrah Satria, one of the passengers on the flight from Denpasar to Jakarta on the night before the crash, said that it was obvious that the plane was experiencing some problems as the flight kept getting delayed.

Syahrul Anto, 48, was found unconscious Friday after his diving partner noticed he had disappeared, said Syaugi. He was quickly found unconscious and brought to shore, where he was attended by doctors, but did not recover.

Soerjanto Tjahjono, chief of the NTSC, told media yesterday that "we have said there's a technical problem but we also want to know what they were discussing in the cockpit and what they were doing".
