Report: Boeing Warns Airlines of Potential 737 MAX Glitch After Lion Air Crash

Boeing has reportedly warned airlines operating its new 737 MAX aircraft of a potential technical problem that could cause the plane to enter into a dangerous dive. A source cited by Bloomberg News late Tuesday said the company is preparing a service bulletin about the issue, which stems from faulty readings from a flight-monitoring system. The warning is said to be based on preliminary findings from the investigation into the Lion Air jetliner crash last week that left 189 people dead. The Lion Air 737 Max 8 lost contact with air-traffic controllers shortly after takeoff and then plunged into the Java Sea. Bloomberg later reported that the bulletin had been delivered, which directs operators to “existing flight crew procedures to address circumstances where there’s erroneous input from an AOA sensor.”
