On Monday, December 28, a Lion Air plane crashed into the Java Sea shortly after takeoff from Jakarta, killing all 189 people on board. The cause of the crash is still under investigation, but the plane’s black box has been recovered and investigators are looking into several possible causes, including engine failure, pilot error, and weather conditions.
The Lion Air plane was a Boeing 737 MAX 8, and it was less than a year old. It had been delivered to Lion Air in August of 2018. The plane had completed its final safety check just two days before the crash.
The plane took off from Jakarta at 6:20 am local time, but it crashed into the Java Sea just 13 minutes later. The pilot had requested to return to the airport shortly after takeoff, but it’s not clear why the plane crashed.
The plane’s black box was recovered from the wreckage and has been sent to be analyzed. The black box contains the plane’s cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder, which will help investigators determine what caused the crash.
The National Transportation Safety Board, the U.S. agency that investigates plane crashes, is sending a team of investigators to help with the investigation.
So far, the cause of the crash is still under investigation, but the following are some of the possible causes that are being looked into:

What happened Indonesian plane?
On Monday, December 28th, an Indonesian plane departed from Soekarno-Hatta Airport in Jakarta, but never made it to its destination. What happened to the plane?
The plane, a Batik Air Boeing 737-800, was carrying 181 passengers and crew when it disappeared from radar screens about an hour after takeoff. Officials say that they lost contact with the plane at 6:22 PM local time.
The plane was flying to Pangkal Pinang, a city on the island of Bangka. It is not clear what happened to the plane, but officials say that it is possible that it crashed into the ocean. So far, there has been no sign of the plane or any of the passengers or crew.
This is the second Indonesian plane to go missing in the past few months. In October, a Lion Air plane crashed into the Java Sea, killing all 189 people on board.
The cause of the crash is still under investigation, but officials say that it is possible that the plane’s automatic pilot system was to blame.
This latest plane crash is a tragic reminder of the dangers of flying. Our thoughts are with the families of the passengers and crew who were on board the Batik Air plane.
What caused the crash of Sriwijaya Air?
On October 1, 2007, Sriwijaya Air Flight 904 crashed into a mountain on the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia, killing all 102 people on board. At the time, it was the deadliest aviation accident in Indonesia since 1997. The cause of the crash has never been determined, but there are several possible explanations.
One possible explanation is that the plane was flying too low and hit the mountain. This is supported by the fact that the plane’s tail was found near the summit of the mountain, indicating that it had hit the mountain head-on. However, it is also possible that the plane was flying too high and lost control in bad weather.
Another possible explanation is that the plane’s engines failed. This is supported by the fact that the plane’s black box was found near the wreckage, and that the black box showed that the engines had failed. However, it is also possible that the plane was struck by lightning or that it was hit by an object in the air.
Ultimately, the cause of the crash of Sriwijaya Air Flight 904 remains a mystery. The Indonesian National Transportation Safety Committee has been unable to determine what caused the crash, and the plane’s wreckage has been destroyed so that it can’t be examined more closely.
What happened Indonesia crash?
What happened Indonesia crash?
On 5 December 2014, AirAsia Flight 8501 crashed into the Java Sea while en route from Surabaya, Indonesia to Singapore, killing all 162 passengers and crew on board. The aircraft, an Airbus A320-200, was less than halfway through its two-hour flight when it disappeared from radar screens.
A massive search-and-rescue operation was launched, but it was called off after a week due to heavy rains and bad weather. The main part of the aircraft was eventually located on the seabed, but the bodies of most of the passengers and crew were never found.
The cause of the crash has never been determined, but the Indonesian National Transportation Safety Committee (NTSC) released a report in December 2015 that said the aircraft had experienced an “uncontrolled” descent into the sea. The report also said that the captain had failed to adhere to the airline’s standard operating procedures, and that the co-pilot had not been properly trained.
AirAsia has since made changes to its safety procedures, and the airline’s CEO, Tony Fernandes, has said that he is “deeply sorry” for the crash.
What happened to Boeing 737 MAX Indonesia?
The Boeing 737 MAX 8 is a modernized version of the 737, a narrow-body jet airliner. As of March 2019, there were 371 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft in operation worldwide. On October 29, 2018, Lion Air Flight 610, a Boeing 737 MAX 8, crashed into the Java Sea minutes after takeoff from Jakarta, Indonesia, killing all 189 people on board. On March 10, 2019, Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, a Boeing 737 MAX 8, crashed six minutes after takeoff from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, killing all 157 people on board.
The crashes of Lion Air Flight 610 and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 have both been attributed to the malfunction of the aircraft’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), which is a new feature of the 737 MAX 8. The MCAS is a system that automatically increases the aircraft’s nose-up angle in order to prevent the aircraft from stalling. However, if the aircraft’s angle of attack (AOA) is too high, the MCAS can erroneously activate, causing the aircraft to pitch up sharply and lose altitude.
On November 13, 2018, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued an emergency airworthiness directive (EAD) ordering the grounding of all Boeing 737 MAX aircraft in the United States. The following day, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) issued a similar order. As of March 14, 2019, a total of 57 countries have grounded all Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.
The cause of the crashes of Lion Air Flight 610 and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 is still under investigation. However, the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has stated that the MCAS “was a key factor” in both crashes. Boeing has stated that it is working on a software update for the MCAS that will be released “in the coming weeks.”

How many Boeing 737 crashed?
Since 1967, when the first Boeing 737 took to the skies, there have been a total of eight crashes involving the aircraft. The most recent crash of a 737 occurred in March of 2019, when a Boeing 737 MAX 8 operated by Ethiopian Airlines crashed shortly after takeoff from Addis Ababa, killing all 157 people on board.
The first crash of a Boeing 737 occurred on December 8, 1967, when a 737-100 operated by Lufthansa crashed into the North Sea, killing all 87 people on board. The deadliest crash of a 737 occurred on May 25, 1979, when a 737-200 operated by American Airlines crashed in Chicago, killing all 181 people on board.
The other crashes of 737s have resulted in the deaths of a total of 346 people. In addition, a number of people have been injured in 737 crashes.
The cause of the March 2019 crash of the Ethiopian Airlines 737 MAX 8 is still under investigation, but preliminary reports suggest that an automated system on the plane called MCAS may have played a role in the disaster.
