No disrespect intended but when i read 737 missing, i just had to ask myself, was it a Max that went down? of course this is terrible news for all the loved ones & friends..

I don't think they have any B737 max planes in service. They did sign for some at the 2015 Paris Air show, but the order never materialized. (per wiki)

It was a Classic, a 26 year old B735. Reg was PK-CLC.

Thank you HoRad on the airframe.

Yes, I am quite sure that when the initial news broke out about this aviation crash; there were questions about the specific B737 and if it was the 'Max'? Latest reports is that the Indonesian Navy has located the wreckage.

So sad to hear. Seven children aboard out of 62 souls.

Thanks for the news. There are rumors about maintenance issues. I'll rather wait for the official report.


The airframe age itself shouldn't be a problem. There are some companies here in Europe which still use 26-27 year old B733 with many cycles (i.e. Tarom) and there weren't any problem. A 737 Classic can fly forever if it's well maintained. Of course salty weather may be a problem we don't really experience here

Agree on waiting to see what the data/information on the black boxes contain now that have been located.

Sad.

Whatever the circumstances, publicity wise, this is not good news for Boeing, just as they are getting 737Max back into service.

It's not the first 25-30 year old 737 Classic that crashes and not the last either. Has nothing to do with the MAX.

Update:

Looks like the investigators are taking a closer look at the auto throttle systems. Still waiting for the information from the flight recorder boxes.

Wonder if the sharp bank in its last seconds of flight had to do with asymmetric power combined with the wx at the time?

Update: Good to hear they found one of the boxes. Just need to recover the Cockpit Voice Recorder box.
