The ceo of the company gave all that the device at the previous flight with a ‘technical problem’ faced. That was, according to him, subsequently resolved. Now get more details on that flight on Sunday.
After take-off in Denpasar on the resort island of Bali, there were unusual variations in altitude and airspeed in the first few minutes of the flight. “There were technical problems, one of which was the unreliable airspeed’, confirmed the deputy head Haryo Satmiko at a press conference. Also weeks the altitude of the pilot and the co-driver from each other.
The flight of Boeing 737 MAX 8 on Sunday night ran far from smoothly. The passengers first had more than an hour waiting in the plane and then get off because the motor for strange sounds made. Also worked the air conditioning not to function properly, so it became warm in the plane and a lot of children sick by the unbearable heat.
When the plane could finally take off, the problems seemed still not to the job. ‘About three minutes after we were airborne, it felt as if the plane is to the force lost and we could no longer rise’, says passenger Alon Soetanto on news channel TVOne. “Why, that is several times occurred. It felt as if we were in a rollercoaster were, people were in panic and had to surrender.’
