What a pleasant flight this must have been, jfc
Data from the jetliner that crashed into the Java Sea last month shows that the pilots fought to save the plane almost from the moment it took off, as the Boeing 737's nose was repeatedly forced down, apparently by an automatic system receiving incorrect sensor readings.
The information from the flight data recorder, contained in a preliminary report prepared by Indonesian crash investigators and scheduled to be released on Wednesday (Nov 28), documents a fatal tug-of-war between man and machine, with the plane's nose forced dangerously downward more than two dozen times during the 11-minute flight.
The pilots managed to pull the nose back up over and over until finally losing control, leaving the plane, Lion Air Flight JT610, to plummet into the ocean at 724kmh, killing all 189 people on board.
The data from the so-called black box is consistent with the theory that investigators have been most focused on: That a computerised system Boeing installed on its latest generation of 737 aircraft to prevent the plane's nose from getting too high and causing a stall instead forced the nose down because of incorrect information it was receiving from sensors on the fuselage.
