Preliminary versions of the crash of a Boeing 737 "Lion Air" in Indonesia

Experts who have already begun to investigate the crash, consider several versions of the tragedy, however, according to experts and analysts, the fault is certainly a technical malfunction.

engine failure

The engine failure version began to be seen by experts involved in investigating a plane crash involving Boeing 737 in Indonesia almost immediately. According to some information, requesting from the air traffic controllers the possibility of an emergency landing, the pilot of the crashed airliner said that the main problem was the disrupted operation of one of the engines.

Experts do not exclude that at the moment of climb, a bird got into the engine of the passenger airliner, which put it out of operation, however, this version has not yet found official confirmation.

Control system failure

In addition to the version with engine failure, experts do not exclude that the failure of the control system could also be to blame.

Due to the fact that the rescuers found a large number of debris at the crash site, the probability that any of the passengers and crew members aboard could survive was extremely small.

At the moment, rescuers are carrying out search work at the crash site, but apart from the first victims of the tragedy, the survivors were not found.
