Governance Boeing didn’t warn of 737 feature tied to deadly crash US pilots say Alan Levin and Mary Schlangenstein 13 November 2018

On their planned wedding day on Sunday Ms Syari carried out her fiance's last request.

Syari who was engaged to a man who died on a Lion Air flight that plunged into the sea has worn her wedding dress on the day they were to have been married.

Alongside another photo of her and Dr Pratama's sister, she wrote: "Although you are not beside me, your sister was with me to fulfil your most handsome last wish".

Ms Syari wrote on Instagram: 'Even though I feel grief that I can not describe, I still have to smile for you. "I have to stay strong like you always told me", Intan added.

The pictures have gone viral online, receiving a flood of condolence messages from all around the world.

The brand new Lion Air Boeing 737 MAX 8 was carrying 189 passengers and crew among which was the prospective bridegroom Rio Nanda Pratama, who died in the crash.

The couple had known each other since middle school, she wrote, and explained how they had decided on the clothes for the wedding and the photoshoot just a few weeks before the crash. Pratama, who had attended a seminar in Jakarta and was on his way back to their hometown in Pangkal Pinang, had joked before leaving that if he were late in returning, Syari should take photos with the wedding gown and send them to him.

USA aviation groups, including the Federal Aviation Authority, say Boeing didn't tell them about a device they added to their 737 MAX aricraft which may have contributed to the deadly Lion Air crash.

'Dr Rio Nanda Pratama...filled every day of her life for 13 years.

'For you my lover Rio Nanda Pratama, thank you for giving me a sister who is so great, strong, smart, merciful and kind, just like you. Incorrect data readings can set off the automated anti-stall system to force the plane into a nose-dive, even if the plane is not on autopilot.

The Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System in limited instances will lower the nose of the 737 Max if the airplane is close to an aerodynamic stall even if pilots are manually operating controls.

Boeing shares fell 2.1 percent on Tuesday on concerns related to the first crash of the newest version of the planemaker's best-selling jet, in which all 189 people on board were killed when it dived into the sea.

Indonesian police have identified the remains of an Italian national onboard a crashed Lion Air flight, which would be returned to his family in Italy, a police official said on Wednesday.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) was reviewing details surrounding the safety data and conclusions the company previously provided to it as part of certifying 737 MAX 8 and MAX 9 models.

As speculation continues as to whether the flight-control system was indeed to blame for the fatal crash in Indonesia, authorities are still searching for the aircraft's black box, which could contain information on what exactly was going on in the cockpit at the time of the crash.
