Boeing withheld information on plane that crashed in Indonesia

Boeing withheld information on plane that crashed in Indonesia

The FAA and Boeing are studying the need for software changes, as well as revisions to training and operating procedures on the 737 MAX, the regulator said.

The lawsuit was lodged in Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois, the United State on November 14, a lawyer at Colson Hicks Eidson & BartlettChen LLC Law Firm Curtis Miner said in the statement released on Thursday.

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.

Lion Air's flight manual did not contain information about the new anti-stall system, according to investigators and an airplane flight manual seen by Reuters.

This news comes after the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday that Boeing withheld information about the potential dangers related to the new flight-control feature.

Boeing announced this feature of the control system of the planes of the 737 Max about a week after the accident in Indonesia, notes the WSJ.

The spokesman for American Airlines assured the public that all company pilots will be properly trained regarding the use of the system. "That's why we don't have the special training for that specific situation", Zwingli said.

Southwest Airlines, 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, Wall Street Journal said, citing a summary of the US carrier's maintenance record it reviewed.

Questions have swirled about Boeing's alleged failure to tell airlines and pilots about changes to an anti-stall system that is being investigated for its possible links to the crash.

Lion Air Flight 610 crashed into the Java Sea shortly after take-off from Jakarta on Oct 29, killing all 189 people on board. One of the airlines pilot died on board a flight in the USA yesterday (October 5, 2015). Safety remains its top priority, it said. "Tragically, Dr. Putrama, a young medical doctor, was flying back home from a conference to get married this week". In a statement, a spokesman says the two urgent updates sent out since the Lion Air crash re-emphasize existing procedures.

Pilots could have stopped the plane from acting uncontrollably by pressing two buttons.
