A week after the disaster, there is still no answer as to what caused the crash.

Investigators are still trying to figure that out.

These sensors measure the angle of attack of planes when climbing to ensure that they do not attempt to fly too steeply and stall. Everyone on board was killed when it plunged into the sea moments after takeoff. As of November 7, the DJPU has conducted in-situ ramp checks of aircraft that belong to Lion Air, Garuda Indonesia, Batik Air, Sriwijaya Air, NAM Air, Wings Air (Indonesia), and Indonesia AirAsia. If the flow is disrupted by a plane going too slowly or climbing too steeply, that can cause the plane to lose the lift required for flight and plummet.

The night before the fatal crash, the same aircraft had erratic speed and altitude issues during a flight from Bali to Jakarta, it emerged yesterday.

An angle of attack sensor had been changed by mechanics on the ground in Bali the day before the crash, Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Committee (KNKT) has said. The data are fed into computers made by Honeywell International Inc. for the plane.

And in this case the procedure for dealing with the problem it is what is called a "memory item" - pilot's commit them to memory. But disengaging the sensors in the heat of the moment, particularly if equipment is malfunctioning and alarms are sounding, can be hard. It is estimated that the global market will need 1,200 cargo carriers modified from standard aircrafts in the next 20 years, and the demand from Chinese carriers would account for about 33 percent of the global demand, according to a report issued by Boeing in September.

A source said on condition of anonymity that the Boeing bulletin related only to the 737 MAX, of which there are just over 200 in service. A lot of them are relatively routine.

A USA aviation regulator plans to mandate that airlines follow an advisory issued by Boeing Co.

The 787 Max 8 is the second Boeing aircraft to experience serious technical problems soon after its introduction, leading some analysts to question whether Boeing may have overlooked quality concerns as it strives to meet rising global demand. A spokesman for the Chicago-based planemaker couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

Pramintohadi Sukarno, the Ministry of Transportation's acting director general for air transportation, said Flight No. JT633 had been canceled and the pilots grounded after the accident.

There are a total of 49 Boeing 737 Max planes in service across the US, including 26 737 Max 8 planes in service at Southwest Airlines, 16 at American Airlines and seven Max 9 planes at United Airlines. Boeing has more than 4,500 orders for the airliners, which feature larger engines, more aerodynamic wings and an upgraded cockpit with larger glass displays.
