"Angle of attack" refers to the angle between relative wind and a reference line on the plane - the sensors' objective is to ensure that air flows over an aircraft's wings, Bloomberg reported.

Prior to the accident, Daniel said that Lion Air had held daily meetings with Boeing representatives in Indonesia and said that several announcements will be made in due course all of which is based on these meetings.

Aerospace and defense giant Boeing is planning to issue a safety warning to people flying its 737 Max jet, Bloomberg reported on Tuesday.

Even if an angle of attack sensor on a jet is faulty, there's generally a backup system in place for the critical component, and pilots are trained to handle a plane safely if those sensors fail, airline safety experts said.

However, a year ago Boeing had to briefly ground its 737 MAX fleet as discrepancies were found in its engines. Boeing has an existing procedure that allows pilots to continue flying in the event that angle of attack readings become erroneous.

Data transmitted from the plane and captured by flightradar24.com indicates that the plane continued flying at high speed away from the airport to which they meant to return, which Cox said seemed unusual.
