Records show that lion boat has had many accidents in recent years.
After the accident, Agence France-Presse announced a report on Indonesian aviation safety standards. Indonesia, which has thousands of islands and is heavily dependent on air transport, has a poor aviation safety record, with several fatal air crashes in recent years, the report said. The Indonesian Budget airline company, the lion boat, has also had many accidents in the past few years.
In 2013, a Lion Airlines passenger plane, piloted by a novice pilot, flew off the runway in Bali and crashed into the sea. The plane split in two, injuring several passengers. In May 2016, two Lion Airlines planes collided at Jakarta International Airport, a month before the incident, a Lion Airlines subsidiary of a passenger aircraft, has just collided with another airline aircraft. In 2017, a Boeing plane collided with another plane at Guaranham Airport in Sumatra, but fortunately no casualties were caused.
Lion Airlines in Indonesia said at a press conference on 29, the crashed Boeing 737 MAX8 passenger aircraft was just put into operation in August this year, and the crash is also the first time in a series of Boeing MAX family aircraft, an air crash.
The aircrafts power system or lift components may have problems.
It is understood that the aircraft is a single channel passenger aircraft, carrying capacity of about 210 people, a voyage of 6570 km. How about the word of mouth? Wang Yanan, editor in chief of aviation knowledge, introduced this model to the voice of China.
Wang Yanan: Boeing 737 MAX series is the latest improvement of the 737 family, its biggest improvement is that it has a very economical engine, at the same time, the reliability of this engine is relatively good. Boeing 737 is actually a very safe family of aircraft that has established a very large market user base and a very solid safety record since it was put into service in the late 1960s.
Wang Yanan told Voice of China that the 737MAX is mainly based on the 737 family in the past to enhance its fuel economy, including ride comfort and maintenance convenience, not a new aircraft, but an upgrade of an old aircraft, in 2016, after its first flight, it has won many orders, many countries have used kimonos. Service. It is not yet possible to determine whether the problem of aircraft is subjective or objective.
Wang Yanan: The plane lost contact from take-off to ten minutes later. Its altitude seems to be rising very slowly. It can reach a maximum of 5,000 feet, that is, 1,600 to 1,700 meters. According to reason, the altitude of the plane must reach a higher level after ten minutes of take-off. So I think theres a problem with the power system or lift components of the aircraft. Its hard to tell whether the mechanical failure of the aircraft itself is caused by human operation or by external forces. It is understood that Indonesia Lion Airlines currently has 11 Boeing 737 MAX8 models, there is no plan to grounding this type of aircraft. Boeing said it was willing to provide technical assistance for accident investigation. Local media said people should carefully choose airlines when purchasing air tickets. Lion Airlines has had frequent accidents, and the government should also strengthen supervision to ensure aviation safety. Source: Voice of China editor: Qiao Jing _NN6607
