Seems someone signed off on the repair and the lack of quality and proper repair is what killed everyone as if there had been a part replacement with a known good one problem would have been solved and test flown without passengers.
But third rate airline at the best and poor oversite is not unusual look at AI and there problems with there new Boeing AC couldn't keep them flying for some time.

Elevator trim changes on large aircraft have always had some kind of visual or aural indication of travel. In this case no visual or aural indication was presented to the pilots to indicate that the system was taking action.

Becareful on airlines from Asia. Remember the 777 crashed at SFO some years back. Or that 777 they never found,

It will be a truly sad day when the United States experiences it’s first plane crash.

It will happen in the USA. But not as much as it will happen with airlines on countries on the Asian continent. They seem to loose control of the automation and aircraft to often. The airplane gets ahead of them stalling a perfectly flying 777 on landing in VFR DAY.

That has happened here and in other western countries. Harping on Asia makes you look like a dumb guy.

Pull up any list of the most dangerous airlines most of them are Asian airlines including Lion air. Check your facts instead of what I look like.

What I wrote was based on fact. It was not based on clickbait lists.

What’s your angle?
