Indonesian investigators have recovered the cockpit voice recorder (CVR) of the Lion Air Boeing 737 MAX 8 that crashed in late October 2018.


The preliminary report into Lion Air flight JT610 says pilots were battling a "flight control problem" before the Boeing 737 MAX 8 crashed in the Java Sea.


As a result of continuing investigations into last week's crash of Lion Air flight 610, the US Federal Aviation Administration has issued an emergency airworthiness directive (AD) to operators of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft calling on them to address procedures in the event of pilots receiving erroneous angle of attack sensor information.


With divers raising the flight data recorder from the Boeing 737 MAX on Thursday, premature conclusions are already being drawn about the cause of the crash of flight JT610 into the Java Sea shortly after departure from Jakarta this Monday.


Recovery efforts are continuing for Lion Air flight JT610, which crashed into the Java Sea after takeoff from Jakarta early Monday morning.
