LION AIR CRASH, Indonesia, 2018 ..

Lion Air Flight 610 (JT610/LNI610) was a passenger flight from Jakarta, to Pangkal Pinang, in Indonesia

On 29 October 2018, the Boeing 737 MAX operating the route crashed into the Java Sea 13 minutes after takeoff, killing all 189 passengers and crew.

  1. Whatever the fault should never have been subject to a fatal crash but have come down safely in the sea. Pilot couldn't control her? Was someone interfering? Hacking the plane? What were govt audit officials on board investigating please (cf. )
  2. The pilot should have been able to bring this airliner down safely in the sea. Sounds to me like it was being flown remotely. Hacked? Government officials among the passengers aboard the downed aircraft including many from the finance ministry audit dept.

  • Did a BOMB cause the Indonesian plane crash? Aviation expert rubbishes claims 21-second 'death spiral' was the result of a technical fault - as rescuers search for 189 passengers feared dead

  • Lion Air flight JT-610 crashed off Indonesia shortly after take-off from Jakarta
  • 189 people were on board jet when it crashed north of the Indonesian city
  • Pictures from the scene showed plane debris and oil floating in the water
  • Aviation expert sensationally claimed bomb may have caused devastating crash
  • Others have suggested the pilots' lack of training was to blame for tragedy 
  • Pilot had reported 'technical difficulties' and asked to return to the airport
  • Jet, which went into service in August, had gone in for repairs ahead of the flight 

A bomb may have caused the crash of a doomed jet that plunged into the sea after taking off in Indonesia, an aviation expert has sensationally claimed.

Lion Air's flight JT-610 was heading to Pangkal Pinang, an island north of the capital, Jakarta, when it lost contact with air control about 6.33am on Monday local time - just 13 minutes after take-off. 
Captain John Nance said the crash - which has left 189 people lost at sea and feared dead - was unusual, and put forward his own theory as to what caused the disaster.

'There's just nothing on board the airplane, including the engines, that could cause a catastrophic nose over like this. So we're looking at the possibility of, for instance, a bomb,' Captain John Nance told Newshub.
Mr Nance also suggested pilot error or a murder-suicide may have been behind the crash.
'An airplane like this does not normally fall out of the sky, even a 737 of an older variety. There's just nothing on board the airplane, including the engines, that could cause a catastrophic nose over like this,' he said.
'What we've got here is a flight path that doesn't make sense, outside of a bomb, or outside of some massive failure.'
Shortly before the disaster, the plane's pilot, Indian national Bhavye Suneja, had reported 'technical difficulties' and, minutes after take-off, asked to return to the airport, an official said. 
Traffic control allowed the return, but the aircraft then vanished from radar and plunged 5,000ft into the sea.

The flight, which crashed shortly after take-off, had suffered instrument problems the day before, according to a technical log obtained by the BBC. 
The technical log from the plane's previous flight from Bali to Jakarta suggests the Indonesian flight had an 'unreliable' airspeed reading and the captain and first officer had conflicting altitude readings the day before the crash. 
Australian aviation expert and former Emirates pilot Captain Byron Bailey said he believed the pilot's lack of training was to blame.
'It's not the airplane at fault, I'm sure of that. You really have to look at budget airlines and the training their pilots are going through,' he told Nine News.
'The problem with these budget airlines is that unlike Qantas, Emirates and everyone else, the pilots get in the flight simulator every six months and practice these things.
'But if these guys are running on a low budget, they aren't getting their simulator training.' 
Lion Air's president said the Boeing 737 MAX 8, which went into service just months ago, had gone in for repairs ahead of its final flight.
'It got repaired in Denpasar (in Bali) and then it was flown to Jakarta,' Edward Sirait told AFP. 'Engineers in Jakarta received notes and did another repair before it took off' on Monday. That's the normal procedure for any plane.'
