Aerospace and defense giant Boeing issued a safety warning to people operating its 737 Max 8 jet, the company confirmed in a statement to FOX Business.

Airline safety experts said pilots are trained to handle a plane safely even if those crucial sensors fail.

The Boeing alert to 737 MAX operators to follow the manual when erroneous data problems are encountered from flight sensors raises more questions than it answers in relation to the Lion Air crash on Monday, October 29.

Boeing says only 200 of its latest 737 MAX jets are in service around the world.

Boeing said in a statement received at China's largest air show in Zhuhai that its bulletin to airlines underscored "existing flight crew procedures" created to address circumstances where information coming into the cockpit from the sensors was wrong.

A Lion Air plane carrying 145 passengers was forced to abort its take-off from Indonesia's Bengkulu city on Wednesday night (Nov 7), after its left wing crashed into a pole.

Boeing said the "angle of attack" sensor, which identifies if a plane is about to stall, was faulty on the doomed flight. If pilots aren't careful, they can cause severe nose-down trim settings that make it impossible to level a plane.

Target last month raised the stakes for the all-important holiday shopping rush, offering US customers free two-day shipping. Amazon is hoping increase sales after the company's revenue projection for the rest of the year fell below some estimates.

Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Committee earlier this week announced the plane had a malfunctioning airspeed indicator on its last four flights, based on analysis of the flight data recorder.

"A "ping" has been detected from the second black box but the signal was very weak, possibly because it was encased in mud", said Nurcahyo Utomo, an air accident official at the transportation safety committee (KNKT).

'The investigation into Lion Air flight 610 is ongoing and Boeing continues to co-operate fully and provide technical assistance at the request and under the direction of government authorities investigating the accident, ' Boeing said. The error erroneously tells pilots that there's a stall in airflow, triggering an automated system that points the plane downward in an effort to regain speed. It was found that on the flight that crashed in Asia this sensor was giving off incorrect data, meaning the pilots weren't flying in the right position.

Virgin Australia is anxiously waiting for the outcome of flight JT610's investigation see if any changes need to be made for its order of Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft.

KNKT is planning to simulate a flight to assess the impact of sensor damage at Boeing's engineering simulator facility in Seattle.

Lion Air flight JT610 was en route to Pangkal Pinang, Indonesia, when it suddenly lost contact with traffic control operators after departing from Jakarta. If there is an "uncommanded nose-down stabilizer trim" on the Max, pilots can counteract it by pushing a switch on their control yoke.
