45 aircraft use American airlines.
Problems with flight control sensors, which have arisen at the Boeing 737 Max that collapsed in Indonesia, may occur in about 250 aircraft of this series, reports Reuters with reference to the message of the US Federal Aviation Administration. 45 liners use American airlines.
According to the administration, problems arise with the sensor, which determines the angle at which the wing is relative to the flow. The sensor can show false data, which can cause difficulties in controlling the aircraft, excessive lowering of the nose of the aircraft, a sharp loss of height, and there is also the risk of a collision with the ground.
