Lax Safety, Faulty Systems Cited in Indonesia Lion Air Boeing 737 Max crash

During the 11 minute flight before the doomed plane crashed into the Java Sea, the pilots battled with an automatic safety system that was relying on faulty instruments that hadn’t been properly fixed despite similar failures on the plane’s previous flight from Bali. The report from Indonesia’s National Transportation Safety Committee, based on information from the plane’s ‘black box’ data recorder, ATC records, interviews with prior crews and other logs, criticized Lion Air’s safety culture and said pilots must be allowed to decide if they want to continue a flight.

Boeing Co., the Chicago-based maker of the plane, said in a statement Wednesday that the 737 Max series of jets are ‘as safe as any airplane that has ever flown.’

MILES KENT WRITES’ 189 lives were lost Monday when a new Boeing 737 MAX 8 crashed shortly after takeoff outside Jakarta. This tragedy comes amid a string of recent Asian air disasters and is especially painful in light of Indonesia’s history of air disasters.

In June of this year, the European Commission announced that it would be lifting the Air Safety ban, introduced in March 2006, on all Indonesian airlines. The ban had prohibited certain Indonesian planes from flying over European Union airspace due to poor safety records. This recent reversal, then, was a major victory for the island nation, as the rapidly growing middle class seeks faster and more reliable means of flight.
