Boeing warns: The plane can suddenly jump

Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft were introduced last year, but manufacturers now warn of serious mistakes.

Following a tragic air crash in Indonesia last week, Boeing released a safety alert for users of new 737 Max aircraft, the E24 press release said.

The accident killed 189 people.

Now Boeing introduced a new cockpit warning instruction manual, they wrote in their Twitter statement. He asks the crew to use the existing instructions on incorrect input from the so-called attack angle sensor. The sensor is designed to maintain air flow during flight, but if it fails, it can cause a sudden drop in the aircraft.

The airline manufacturer also instructs what the pilots should do if an error occurs. These warnings should be based on preliminary findings from the crash.

The Boeing aircraft was 737 Max 8 aircraft from Lion Air, and according to the Indonesian Air Force, it was just two months old.

The company was previously involved in a major accident, including Boeing, but the 737-800. No one died in the accident.

The airline in Indonesia is the first major accident of this 737 model, introduced in the last year's market. Reuters wrote in October that Boeing received 4783 aircraft orders, of which 219 were delivered by the end of September.

Norwegian is one of the companies that use the flight model and has 14 editions of 737 Max 8.

Norwegian says it is quite common for Boeing to send information about routines and procedures. In this case, Boeing has put forward recommendations as to which procedures can be adopted if a sensor failure occurs which may send incorrect signals to the stabilizer, among other things.

– All of our 737 Max 8 work as usual, and security always has the absolute highest priority. We regularly contact Boeing and follow their recommendations and instructions, wrote Norwegian in ABC News.
