The Boeing 737 MAX 8 literally fell out of the sky near where the two men were fishing about 15 km (9 miles) off the coast, silently at first and then with a deafening crash as it smacked into the sea. Police busied themselves with rubber dinghies and ambulances were lined up on the shoreline, but no one pretended that any of the 189 people on board flight JT610 would be found alive.

    TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Task Executor of the Directorate General of Air Transportation Pramintohadi Sukarno said his office will study the Flight Crew Operating Manual Bulletin (FCOM) recently issued by Boeing as a preventive measure following the Lion Air flight JT 610 crash.

    The ill-fated Lion Air jet plane used Boeing’s latest 737 MAX series, which according to an initial investigation by the National Transportation Safety Commission (KNKT) had allegedly experienced an instrumental anomaly caused by erroneous input in the plane’s angle of attack sensor.

    “Boeing Co. stated that the FCOM was based on the information obtained from the crash of the Lion Air flight JT 610 into the Tanjung Karawang sea,” said Pramintohadi in a written statement today, Nov. 10.

    “We are currently studying the emergency airworthiness directive (AD).”

    The KNKT has worked in collaboration with the United States NTSB and Boeing to enable immediate actions by every stakeholder upon issuing preventive actions.
