The FAA also notified other regulatory agencies around the world, which typically follow the US agency's lead on safety matters.

Lion Air again, the airplane was ready for take off and hit a light pole at Fatmawati Bengkulu Airport, Aircraft Reg JT-633, Route BKS-CGK. The airline faulted the airport's aircraft movement control personnel who directed the plane from the apron to the taxiway.

Experts say the Boeing notice could be about the "angle of attack", which is the angle of the wing relative to oncoming air stream, a measure that indicates if a plane is likely to stall.

"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", it said.

Virgin Australia is anxiously waiting for the outcome of flight JT610's investigation see if any changes need to be made for its order of Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft. Both that flight and its October 28 trip from Bali to Jakarta showed erratic speed and altitude shortly after take-off.

Chairman Soerjanto Tjahjono said the airspeed indicator and sensor problems were related.

The sensor on the doomed plane had been replaced the day before, after it failed on a previous trip, the Indonesia National Transportation Safety Committee said in a briefing. The plane dove suddenly crashed after takeoff. They made a decision to fly on to Jakarta at a lower-than-normal altitude.

"The point is that after the AOA [sensor] is replaced the problem is not solved, but the problem might even increase".




The warning follows preliminary findings from the Lion Air crash that the angle-of-attack (AOA) sensor malfunctioned.

"We also plan to conduct a flight reconstruction to see the impact of the AOA sensor damage in the engineering simulator at the Boeing facility in Seattle".

"We have extended the operation for three more days", Muhammad Syaugi, the head of the national search and rescue agency (Basarnas), told Reuters.

Divers have recovered one of the two "black boxes" - the flight data recorder - but are still looking for the cockpit voice recorder, in the hope it will shed more light on the cause of the accident.

Airplane manufacturer Boeing and the FAA issued a safety alert on Tuesday, saying a sensor issue on one of their models could cause the planes to nose dive and crash.

On the basis of the Oct 28 flight, Indonesian investigators said they'd provided recommendations to Boeing for distribution to airlines around the world about how to deal with a similar situation.

The Lion Air crash is the worst airline disaster in Indonesia since 1997, when 234 people died on a Garuda flight near Medan.
