Indonesia urges more training for pilots after Lion Air crash

Boeing Kept Pilots in the Dark About Hazards of 737 Model's Feature - Reports

Boeing CEO: 737 Max jets are safe

Intan wrote on her Instagram account that before boarding the ill-fated flight, her fiancé, Rio Nanda Pratama, jokingly told her: "If I don't return by Nov 11, go ahead wear your wedding dress that I chose for you, wear handsome make-up, ask for a fresh white rose from Ms Sheila (wedding organiser), and take good photos".

A woman whose fiance was killed in the Lion Air plane crash has shared photos of herself in her wedding dress on the day the couple were meant to be married. "Take good photos and send them to me".

"Even though I feel grief that I can not describe, I still have to smile for you", the young woman wrote on Instagram.

The pictures have gone viral online, receiving a flood of condolence messages from all around the world.

737 MAX 8 crashed offshore of Indonesia last week killing all 189 people on board, the company referred operators of the aircraft to the plane's operation manual for procedures to deal with possible erroneous input from a sensor created to prevent the aircraft from going into a stall.

Syari, on another post, thanked her late partner for giving her a "great, strong, smart, merciful and kind" sister just like him.

"He told her that in case he didn't come home, Intan should continue with the plan", Ms Pebriana told BBC Indonesian's Famega Syavira.

Medical doctor Mr Pratama had joked shortly before the flight that she should take the pictures and send them to him if he did not arrive at the wedding on time, according to the wedding photographer.

Boeing "also trails on deliveries of its high-margin MAX aircraft, which affect profit disproportionately, with the plane accounting for 37% of the total vs. guidance of 40-45%", Ferguson says.

Saudi prosecutor reveals who gave order for Khashoggi’s killing
The kingdom also confirmed Turkish claims that a 15-man hit squad was sent to Turkey, and that these agents killed Mr Khashoggi. Khashoggi, a frequent contributor to The Washington Post , was killed on October 2 inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

She said Ms Syari had been very strong and had kept her tears in.

They started dating 13 years ago.

But Syari's fiancé, Dr Rio Nanda Pratama, never returned. They knew each other since school.

Captain Daniel Putut Kuncoro Adi, Managing Director of Lion Air Group, told CNN Wednesday that the airline is "collecting all information in our internal investigation, we were working with our experts in (operations and engineering) departments, but again we do respect the investigation process done by (Indonesian safety inspectors), and we look forward to the report".

Ms Syari's tribute comes as Boeing has been accused of not warning airline pilots of a new feature on its 737 MAX jets which may have contributed to Lion Air flight 610's tragic crash.

Boeing Chairman and CEO Dennis Muilenburg defended the company on Tuesday, saying the manufacturer's bulletins highlight existing safety procedures, including the one that could have caused the Lion Air crash.

Safety experts involved in the investigation said U.S. aviation officials and airline pilots hadn't been told the new system had been added to the 737 MAX aircraft.

The FAA on November 7 issued an emergency airworthiness directive ordering United States airlines to incorporate information about the feature in their pilot manuals. Incorrect data readings can set off the automated anti-stall system to force the plane into a nose-dive, even if the plane is not on autopilot.

Indonesia's National Transport Safety Committee is continuing to search for the plane's crash-proof cockpit voice recorder under the sea, it said Monday.
