A relative sprinkles flowers for victims in the crashed Lion Air flight 610 aboard an Indonesia Navy ship in the waters where the aeroplane is believed to have crashed in Tanjung Karawang, Indonesia, on Tuesday.

Lion - always been dogged by safety problems - has said the Boeing 737-Max 8 suffered a technical issue on the flight just prior to its deadly crash Monday and that it was fixed. They are paired with separate indicators measuring the degree to which the nose is pointed up, down or level.

Speed-measuring systems consist of tubes and sensors that measure air pressure generated by the plane's movement and compare it with surrounding air pressure.

These sensors measure the angle of attack of planes when climbing to ensure that they do not attempt to fly too steeply and stall.

This issue is said to arise only during manual flight.

Distraught and angry relatives of those killed when a Lion Air jet crashed last week have confronted the airline's co-founder during a meeting Monday arranged by Indonesian officials.

"When there was a problem, the pilot would write it down and the mechanic would do (a repair).Then the plane would be declared airworthy". "Cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder are both important to reveal the truth in this case".

Many wept when they saw search personnel working. The malfunction can cause the plane's computers to erroneously register an aerodynamic stall, causing the aircraft to abruptly dive to regain the airspeed it needs to keep flying.

"If you were driving down the interstate and the speedometer failed, would you expect to crash the auto?" said John Cox, a former airline pilot and now a safety consultant. Scores of body bags have been gathered but so far only 14 individuals have been identified.

"The investigation into Lion Air flight 610 is ongoing and Boeing continues to cooperate fully and provide technical assistance at the request and under the direction of government authorities investigating the accident".

The warning comes as Indonesia's transport ministry has scheduled a briefing to share the latest information on the Lion Air tragedy. The audio device may be crucial to unraveling what happened during the flight's final moments.

The pilots' actions will also be studied.

Tjahjono also said that the small area where the debris has been located, as well as the copious amounts of debris found there, indicates that the aircraft crashed into the water at high speed. "People panicked. It dropped about 400 feet", said Gaharu, adding that he had confirmed the height of the drop on a flight-tracking website.

Indonesia's search and rescue agency extended the search effort on Wednesday for a second time, saying it would continue until Sunday.

An angle of attack sensor had been changed by mechanics on the ground in Bali the day before the crash, Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Committee (KNKT) said.

Pilots are trained to deal with faulty airspeed readings.

"Lion Air said the problem was fixed, is it true the problem was cleared?" asked Bambang Sukandar, whose son was on the flight.
