A Lion Air flight (JT610) has crashed into Jakarta Sea shortly after takeoff

Who do you think is responsible for this crash? Lion Air? Boeing? The Indonesian government?

Im going to doubt on that. I don’t think the government would willingly kill 10-12 government officials

No, but they might be partially responsible for having low legally defined security standards required for airlines to operate. We’ll see when we have an investigation report. Until then, it’s basically just speculation.

Families are now filing suit against Boeing as they are likely responsible for the crash due to a new system in the 737 Max that puts the plane in an “auto dive” if it senses a stall. That system which likely caused the crash was not made known in the aircraft manuals nor was anybody told about it.

Whose fault is this? Boeing’s or Lion Air’s? I would say it’s the airlines fault, they should never have let the plane fly with a broken airspeed indicator. Whether or not the pilots knew about this system, it would have still engaged when it sensed the plane was stalling.

True. The plane went into prestall Boings system put it into a dive until it smashed into the water killing everybody, If Boing hadnt had that system it would have never had happened.

The planes sensors were cleared so Idk.

They will get compensation from the airline anyway but it will likely be higher factoring in some responsibility and Boeing will likely have to compensate the families as their is blame with them. The same has happened with past incidents.

The families sued Boeing for the not working Auto Dive system.

The investigation has now solely shifted to Boeing and the United States FAA is currently considering taking action against the airline putting them on notice. The American Airlines Pilots Union has filed suit against Boeing making it the first time in aviation history that a United States Union has sued Boeing. It has been duly noted by investigators now that the AOA sensors which are responsible for triggering the aircraft pre stall auto dive system were previously faulty and replaced multiple times further investigation will be needed but probable cause has been established that the AOA sensors are responsible for causing an auto dive which crashed the aircraft.

The issue seems to be that these thousands of Pilots are pretty upset with Boeing because nobody knew about the auto dive system nor was it a part of any updated manual from Boeing.

After checking out several videos of MAXes, I unintentionally discovered this video. This footage is taken 2 days prior to the doomed flight
