Indonesia Plane Crash Probe Centers on Engine Control Problems
"Okay. The first item in our news segment is from wall. Street journal dot com indonesia plane crash probe centers on engine control. Problems the dad. The data indicates the data indicates the so-called auto throttle system which automatically adjusts feel flow and thrust to maintain the paths at. My pilots wasn't operating properly on one engine. At some point during the boeing seven. Thirty seven five hundred. Climb away from the nation's capital jakarta on january nine according to some of the people familiar with the matter instead of shutting off the system. They said the flight data recorder indicates pilots tried to get the stuck throttle to function such engine control. Malfunctions can create significant differences in power between engines making a twin engine jet harder to control and it kapit potentially distract pilots from maintaining a safe flight. Okay twin engine aircraft such as the seven thirty seven are designed to fly safely on a single engine. I don't know why they're talking about now. Single engine because we're talking about an auto throttle anyway. I'm sorry i should read the wall street. Journal article twin engine aircraft such as the seven thirty seven are designed to fly safely on single engine and pilots are trained to do that in various situations but large differences in thrust between engines according to pilots and safety experts require swift pilot recognition of the problem. Which would ideally be followed by quick responses and manual commands. Harjo sought meco deputy head of indonesia indonesia's national transportation safety committee confirmed the probe is looking into an auto throttle problem. He said investigators may obtain specific information about the pilots handling of the auto throttle after listening to the cockpit voice recorder which authorities are trying to retrieve from the crash. Site that device. The plane's second black box could shed more light on what pilots were saying on the flight. Deck as they responded to the malfunction Let's see those familiar with the details of the probe. Along with safety experts tracking. It said it was too early to draw definitive conclusions about why two experienced pilots lost control. The jet or what other factors may have contributed to the crash information from the flight. Data recorder is under further analysis while pilot records and maintenance files are being examined. Investigators haven't detailed the primary focus of the probe. Though they they say that both engines were putting out power when the jet hit the water killing all sixty two onboard they also have said the location of debris indicates the plane was intact when it hit the water so it goes on in this article a talk about the flights and information. I think that we've already discussed on the show that so apparently there was on previous flights. There were a couple of write ups individual write ups on different flights About the auto throttle system and if that is indeed what happened. Here i i. Don't it's hard for me to mel again. I i hate to say anything because it's all speculation but if the bottles don't work properly than shot the auto throttles off the airplane flies. Just fine without a throttles. There are a lot of airplanes out there today. Blind without auto throttle system. So i hope they didn't get so distracted or focused on the system. They let the airplane. Get away from them and Crash but they tend to be pointing in that direction. I think yeah. I wish i knew more about the seven. Thirty sevens systems but If if i'm guessing correctly The throttles would move In response to the auto throttle which would generate the correct response in the The fayed echo the macula. Whatever feel control system there is On the and these engines So i'm just a bit bemused as to why particularly when you have got You can see the throttled move in response to what the throttle is doing. You can detect the problem. I would be very surprised. That they if they got uncommanded or throttle movement that they wasn't an essay shaded warning with it a bit surprised that the oldest shuttle didn't attorney itself because normally what all throttle does something unusual it's detected by whatever full system there is in the system mandate will turn itself off So yeah. I think you're probably right jeff I think they may have got Over very interested in trying to solve a problem on weren't paying enough attention to what their plane was doing In this situation. It's very important for the pond flying to concentrate on his job and who was trying to find the issue It just to Do their thing almost independently both get involved in trying to fix. What is effectively is just at part throttle full. As you said is relatively minor pro.

And then how do you pronounce this airlines three swaggie. A- that's pretty good. That's about as we gye sweet swiss regime. Oh i think Our translator staff will be able to tell us exactly. that's this'll be the official pronunciation. Go ahead stuff. This is the language that i unfortunately do not speak. No sorry. I cannot help okay. Well we're going to say this indonesian giant. I like i like mine the best. What do you think okay sounds. Good jeff always okay. Liz was gone with. She's voted for me Took over the aircraft. May of twenty twelve Let's see on the only instance that this airframe has had were bird strikes in nineteen ninety. Four two thousand four two thousand five In march of twenty twenty at the start of the pandemic was parked at soraya for storage in november of last year the aircraft was inspected for an extension of its aircraft operating certificate aoc To december twenty twenty one and a few weeks later it passed inspection. As part of the airline's return to service procedures the boeing seven thirty-seven resume service on the nineteenth of december twenty twenty with his first passenger flight on the twenty second. Now you fast forward to january ninth ninth. Yeah january ninth of so. Let me find the actual narrative here a Seven thirty seven five hundred flight. One eighty two from jakarta to pontianak indonesia with fifty six passengers and six crew had been cleared declined to flight level. Two nine zero was climbing through about ten thousand eight hundred feet. Mfl out of jakarta about eleven nautical miles north of jakarta's Soekarno hatta international airport was over jobs. See when radar and radio contact was lost with the aircraft. The aircraft has so far not turned up anywhere else. Okay this is the original reporting. Of course they did find the wreckage debris And body parts were located in waters of about fifteen meters depth near lung kong island no survivors so we have a few updates here. They did find the flight. Data recorder and it has been successfully downloaded and all three hundred and thirty parameters are recorded recorded are in good condition and currently being analyzed. They also found the just recently. I think on the fifteenth found the vr But they are still looking for the memory unit of the assembly so So far not good with the cockpit voice recorder recovery. Unless there's been recent news that i didn't see i did check this this morning though So yeah. I kind of interesting They don't really have any other. Data will of course the flight data recorder data that. We hasn't been released yet. So i would imagine that maybe the investigators have some idea of what happened to the airplane but we don't know anything about it yet except that it crashed system where i i saw a little bit of Flight right on twenty four all made it looked like it was on a relatively straight climb out that it began a unexpected turn and then it sort of compared to spiral downwards on so. Yeah the dwell nba. There is another. There's another one that we're going to talk about a citation Jet citation five over oregon. That did that but this one was flying a heading. That was not The assigned heading. I think they gave him a zero seven five heading but it continued to the northwest. And that's when they first realized that there was something going on with The flight. I may be confusing. The two don't worry amount me. Okay was that i'm sorry i guess. Was that heading zero five. Some they requested or or something that was assigned atc. I think that that was something that was. I think that was assigned by abc. And i don't think it was a part of the departure procedure. I think they gave them that vector. I think i'm remembering that correctly But yeah it It didn't Fly that heading. I guess that was or maybe it was supposed to fly that general heading and they noticed the controllers noticed that they were not that we're continuing To the north west

Black box from Indonesian jet recovered from ocean floor
"Shifting our focus overseas. Now divers and Indonesia say they've located the black box from a commercial jet that crashed over the weekend. Authorities there say all 62 people on board were killed. It was an older model of the Boeing 7 37, not a 7 37 Max. NPR's David Schaper has more The plane took off from Jakarta's international airport Saturday afternoon and a heavy rainstorm, according to the tracking service flight radar 24 climbed to just under 11,000 ft and four minutes But then suddenly went into a steep descent plummeting more than 10,000 ft in less than 30 seconds. Well, that is definitely abnormal. Anthony Brickhouse is a former plane crash investigator for the NTSB and now a professor of aviation safety at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. So the fact that they dove that at that clip is obviously concerning Then there's something that investigators will focus in on. Todd Curtis is a former Boeing safety engineer and now runs They don't have the maneuverability of Let's say a fighter aircraft. If you start going in a very, very high velocity toward the ocean, you can't pull the aircraft out of the dive, and Curtis says What's left of the plane will hold important clues. Debris has been recovered from the ocean surface and from the floor of the ocean. That debris could indicate what the sequence of events was when it came to the airplane breaking out. This particular Boeing plane was 27 years old. But Curtis says that might not matter for large airliners like 2737. Age is not really a consideration. What is the thing that determines whether not an aircraft can be flown at low risk is whether knots properly maintained warmer crash investigator Anthony Brickhouse says the flight data and cockpit voice recorders will also hold vital clues. They give us information. As to what was happening on a specific aircraft in the minutes before that shouldn't happen and actually during the accident, well investigators we released preliminary findings on what may have caused the plane to crash in the coming days and weeks, it could take them a year or longer to reach any final conclusions.

"jakarta" Discussed on Chapo Trap House
"In a western part of Indonesia where they're telling people in speeches. You have to help us get the or else. We're going to get you. And then they started arresting. People in mass and people are arrested. Because they don't think anything's GONNA happen to them so a lot of the people that I met. That were victims of this violence survivor. Had their friends killed. They were like hey. I'll go down like an interview at the station like you know I'm just like in. The Teacher's Union are. I'm you know I'm a farmer like whatever but they take them in and they never come out so over the next three or four months they have one million people that stay in concentration camps and another five hundred thousand to a million that are taken out in the middle of the night interest thrown in the river killed and this dynamic is very hard for people to stand up to because nobody knows what happened to the relatives right like we know about like disappearances in Latin America may be the case that disappearances Latin America were sort of a copy of this really effective strategy and at every step of the way the US State Department got reports encouraged more killings by making it very clear that in order for them to receive international recognition at the peak peak. I need to be crushed and handing lists of people to be killed over to the army and then waiting to see if they'd been checked off properly and this is all stuff we didn't know for a very long time. It's only like work like academics and activists that have been going at this for decades and decades. We finally put this picture together but now it's very clear that the US was an active participant in the in the massacre profile. One woman at your book who was seventeen years old. Who had just moved to Jakarta to make money working in a textile factory and he was a trade union to get that job. It was a pretty good job and she would send money home and then she goes home to visit her family. When this all happens and the cops come to our house and arrested for be just being a member of a trade union and she wasn't like a political person for the most part. She was a seventeen year old girl and they arrests her and then like. That's the beginning of a years. Long ordeal like a nightmare. No it's not over for her to her name is Magdalena and her life is still very very difficult. It's it's never like unlike Latin America. These victims were never given in like a big. I'm sorry you didn't do anything wrong. And they still sort of live as outcasts and being told that they were they were guilty but yeah I mean like you said that really is kind of the point of this atrocity was to like to both like ten still such a sense of fear and silence in the entire country that like no one would ever like that to remind you that the people who did it are the victors we won and part of our victory is making sure that like the shame of what we did will never be discussed like not only happened like it's shameful to have been a victim of of this or have a family member who was Murdered and taken away from you and without any official recourse or acknowledgement of that. Yeah and I mean it was extraordinarily effective and I think the reason that people like me could get swept up in this. Is that right before the massacre started about twenty five to thirty percent of the country was somehow an affiliate with the Communist Party. So like you wouldn't be able to just take power and say a worthy government now like you needed this kinda very brutal horrible mass demonstration of as you said. Who's really the boss? If you're going to take over a country where the party that would have won. The elections was the Communist Party right and this was extraordinarily effective. Everyone in Washington understood affected. This was New York Times columnist James. Rest in re wrote a very. You know you for a column about this. This huge success in anticommunist around the world and this is where the book takes its name. They understood how hugely effective this was. And they start talking about this this truecar method or this truecard a plan or Operation Jakarta as they could do in their own country because obviously Suharto got away with it right so if you if you could kill a million innocent people and nothing happens to you you become best friends with with with the White House. People in Latin America people in Southeast Asia. They realize Oh. We could do really anything as long as we say. Anti-communism is the reason and they started coming up with copycat programs all around the world and found like in total the entire Cold War from nineteen forty-five to nineteen ninety five or so over. Twenty countries backed by the United States rallied with the United States. Carried out some kind of mass murder of civilians. Intentional exterminates extermination programs to get rid of either leftist or people. They claim that were left us. I mean so the final sort of thing that I think becomes clear after looking at all. These horrible stories is that the mass murder of innocent civilians was a fundamental part of the way that the United States won. The Cold War ended affected the way that the Cold War shaped the order that followed it. I mean I want to get into this connection to other countries and particularly Brazil and how living and working there lead you to this story but just what you just said you right. I fear that the truth of what happened contradicts so forcefully. Our our idea of what the Cold War was of what it means to be an American or how globalization has taken place that it has simply been easier to ignore it and when I read that like I I thought about how so much of our American national identity is tied up in World War. Two and the idea that we were the good guys in World War. Two and you know we intervene. We stopped a genocidal dictator. And that if we hadn't intervened like he would have got away with it and we might never have even known about it like we stopped we. We're the good guys and there is an unambiguous bad guy and then like to know about something like this. So violently up ends that like stories like this because we like the people in Internet like the people who carried out those atrocities were the victors and they were victorious because they were on our side and not only that they're pretending they're the real victims in all of this and it's just like to win the Cold War essentially. We had to become the thing that we are also proud of ourselves for defeating in world. War Two yeah and I think Not only did they get. Did they win because they were on our side? The reason that they never got punished at all because they're on their side right so we all know about sort of Pol Pot right. We all know about any time. A Communist in the twentieth century committed a crime. And we we have. It's very easy for us to make these connections like Oh that was the international communist movement and whenever a communist in this country does something that everyone's guilty but it's equally true. If not more true that in the twentieth century there was an international anticommunist movement that learn from each other traded officials traded. They had these big meetings several an NC communist International organizations and we don't hear about that side of it. I mean it's only speculation but my best guess is that it's just too. It's not nice to think about right. It's your if you run the world which we do and you you know. The three of us are all sort of beneficiaries indirectly whether or not the United States is does a good job of distributing those benefits to its people. We are sort of indirectly the beneficiaries of that victory. And it's just like it's easier to talk about World War Two. This is why you know that is the big historical thing that always happens..

But it says successfully mobilized thousands of his limit fundamentalist and conservatives in the streets of Jakarta, demand, the arrest of then governor on blasphemy charges. That's an idea of success. I guess sedately. Yes. This was two years ago to go yesterday. And what happened I it seen as sort of like, the the peak of the sort of Islam Michael position.

But I don't think is a cause for for elation about the state of the Islamic revivalism that we've got an Indonesia, and is fundamentalism is strong. And it's there is completely change politics. Maintaining the seam of some. What regressive sounding stories emanating from Indonesia. This is the post. Well, the headline sums it up quite nicely as the rest of the world quits, Indonesia wants lax rules tobacco investment does Indonesia see pulse ability here as as the the rest of the world tries to win it so forth tobacco. Yeah. I guess. I mean, Indonesia, obviously grows tobacco and Indonesians smoked tobacco. Yeah. I mean, I it's a weird one. They've got some many tobacco and all the health problems associated with it such a well-known problem, Indonesia, clearly is taking another track, and what was happening is liberalizing the tobacco industry to allow foreign investment coming which has been yes. Quite a coma. One for choline terms of developing infrastructures, always a here is she the tobacco infrastructure. I guess you say with this idea that there's also going to be trickled down to the the small and medium sized companies associated with tobacco. But you know, when the same time the government has this plan to reduce smoking amongst the under eighteen population. So and so forth as just working case and the predictions here actually that numbs of Andrei again and contain gonna rise and so on and this is just storing up enormous problem in into the decades ahead as you know, in disease. Which is still has really quite a young population. And this young male population of smokers gets older is just going to be an enormous crisis for the health system.

"So, but actually I write about basically my initiation into this whole other worlds of the city in which I lived, which was sparked by Nessie going fried rice. And it was kind of part of general night of rebellion. It happened to coincide literally the exact same time with the first cigarette I ever smoked as well with three friends we had. We had been drinking at some party or something, and we're hungry and we're like, let's get some nasty, glorying. Let's you know, do the Jakarta thing. And let's also by feel like that, like a moment of rebellion. Yeah, absolutely. And it felt the whole thing kind of felt like this was our night of rebellion, you know? So we literally were just like smoking cigarettes wrong because it's for cigarettes of while like, no, we didn't. We didn't get sick. Shoveling, you know, orders of Nasi going into our face, but then I, that kind of, I don't remember the exact trajectory of how it happened, but that kind of ramped up became something that just became part of my weekly or every other week experience of going out with friends, alter my teenage years. And it was like an entry into this whole other part of the city that like I had called home, but wasn't really home. And suddenly it started feeling a little bit more like home because I'd be sitting next to like the local punk rock kids and like the local salarymen who are just getting off work at eleven o'clock, and it felt felt good. If I was learning the language better, I was making more Indonesian friends, and it became kind of a rite of passage into feeling like I was part of Jakarta, and sort of capstone of that is a very local variety of ESI Goering which is called Nasi grand gala, which literally translates to crazy fried rice. And this is going back to my kind of out of necessity thing and. The forebears of it was invented in Jakarta else far as people know. And it basically involves frying rice and throwing literally whatever you have on you into it. So that's usually various types of sausage. Maybe some awful. I've had it with like chicken heart before, you know, other random scraps of meat and then like to mask everything, you just put in it like a fucking barrel of chilly. So it just blows your face off as well of chopped chilis and and some hot sauce. So you need both. It's just it's fire, but it became like the that was like the one to work up to once we did that. It was like Nessie Goering Gallo where we're getting tonight and not only is it from just a card. It's from specific neighborhood in Jakarta, which fun fact happens to also be the neighborhood where Obama went to school when he was in Jakarta to the point that now one of the most famous little of Nasi going galas stands because most of these are just makeshift stands that pop up overnight is known as nasty going gala. Obama people still go see because it's right next to the school where you went as a kid. So you're saying you're, you're friends with him. I'm saying, yeah, we all know each other, you know. But so the point is like that for me was very formative in making me feel even if I was still a little bit cyber because I'm not Indonesia, and I was living in Asia for five years in a very privileged environment within Jakarta. It did make me feel like I was part of the city had kind of crossed that barrier. And you know, even. If as a teenager, I was like an idiot in every other respects, it like felt like I was at least participating some form of cultural exchange with the environment around me. You know, says it's at, I loved it. Now. It's like it's one of my fondest memories, and I just got back from Jakarta on a work trip. And one of the first things I did will you know, after midnight was like to my friends who are still there, it was like cool where we getting going dealer and we went out and we found a spot and it was like it felt really to do it again, you found in Jakarta, there.

"Design was encoded in thick cardboard cards. Each hole or position of the whole represents a hook on the loom. A hole in the card told the loom? Yes, lift this thread. So whether the hook is raised or lowered, depends on whether there's a whole or not a hole in the jet card control cards, which were tied together into a loop and fed automatically into the loom in one card represented, just one pass of thread. So there will be lots of cards so together and the loop of cards went around and around and around to create a repeating pattern just like the music encoded in the music box. This didn't mean the machine was weaving, the cloth automatically. It's still required a master Weaver and a pattern designer and a punch card maker. But it did mean the draw boys were out of a job. Once you have a Jakarta mechanism, you don't need the draw boy half of your. Your workforce can be eliminated for manufacturers who wanted to make the most beautiful. The most intricate patterns what was increasingly more important than labor was intellectual property. The designs in Jakarta, Stein. People stole these control cards because they represented patterns that if they the patterns were popular, could be very lucrative to keep fashion goes in styles. And everybody comes out with the same stuff every year, like they're all copying each other on Wall Street, the same trends. So I like to think of this as the first instance of software piracy on the people are stealing these these card loom cards, and the jacquard loom cards would lead to the development of an entire new industry that would change the world in eighteen ninety German American inventor named Sherman, hollering, devised a solution to the United States census bureau's problem of counting all the new immigrants to the country and citizens tabby. The census used to take about ten years. So that means by the time the census was finished. It was already time to start taking the next one whole earth came up with a system where if each individual's information was punched on cards, it could be processed more quickly. Herman hollering specifically quoted the Jakarta Lynn, as his influence his influence for coming up with computer punch cards. Once you have patterns of holes in a card, it's now machine readable, and that's how the census was done in three years instead of ten, the eighteen ninety census was a huge advance in the history of computing. Now, just to wrap up the story, hollering. Punch-card patents were actually the foundation for a small company. You may have heard of called International Business Machines or IBM, which in some ways owes its existence to the loom and that rising demand for beautiful ornate patterns and fashion, because fashion fashion is just another word for the constant inevitable shifts in. Popular taste garments just like buildings.
