A faulty sensor on a Lion Air 737 MAX that’s been linked to the jetliner’s deadly crash last October and a harrowing ride was repaired in a US aircraft maintenance facility before the tragedy, according to investigative documents. Accident investigators in Indonesia, home of Lion Air, and the US, where Boeing Co., the plane’s manufacturer, is based, have been examining the work that a Florida repair shop previously performed on the so called angle-of-attack sensor, according to briefing documents prepared for Indonesia’s parliament. Erroneous signals from that sensor triggered the nose-down movements on the October 29 flight that pilots struggled with until the jet plunged into the Java Sea, killing all 189 people aboard, according to a accident report.
