Bride of Lion Air crash victim weds without a groom

Boeing утаил смертельно опасную особенность лайнеров 737 MAX

Boeing and the FAA continue to evaluate the need for upgrades to the software or are planning to change the design of the aircraft.

The father of Rio Nanda Pratama filed the lawsuit on Wednesday in the U.S. state of IL, where the plane manufacturer is headquartered, over the death of the young doctor who was to have married his high-school sweetheart this week.

Both Lion Air and the APA reject the company's assertion.

The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this week that Boeing withheld information about problems with the system from pilots.

The aircraft was a virtually brand-new Boeing 737 MAX 8 that was designed and manufactured in the United States. Investigators believe the system may have been triggered on inaccurate data transmitted or processed from sensors on the fuselage, causing the plane to nosedive into the water.

"We value our partnership with Boeing, but were unaware of some of the functionality of the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System installed on the MAX 8", an American Airlines spokesman said in a statement.

The 26-year-old man was among the 189 people killed when the Boeing 737-MAX plunged into the Java Sea on October 29, less than 20 minutes after leaving Jakarta on a routine flight to Pangkal Pinang city.

Dozens of people died and perhaps several hundred are unaccounted for in the nation's deadliest wildfire in a century. Volunteer rescue workers search for human remains in the rubble of homes burned in the Camp Fire in Paradise, Calif.

Southwest Airlines Co., the biggest operator of the 737 Max 8, replaced two malfunctioning flight-control sensors of the same type during the three weeks before the Lion Air craft, the Wall Street Journal said, citing a summary of the US carrier's maintenance record it reviewed.

It was not immediately clear if the issue in question was directly related to what happened in Indonesia, but Boeing said it is fully cooperating with the investigation.

Boeing declined to directly address the issue Monday, but did address the aircraft's overall safety. "We are confident in the safety of the 737 MAX".

A Boeing spokeswoman said the manufacturer could not discuss specifics of an ongoing investigation but it had provided two updates for operators around the world that re-emphasize existing procedures to deal with situations relating to MCAS.

Pratama took the doomed Lion Air JT 610 flight to fly back to Pangkalpinang after attending a conference in Jakarta.

Pilots can stop the automated response by pressing two buttons if the system behaves unexpectedly, the FAA says.
