Boeing Corporation is in preparations for sending a bulletin on its new 737 models to operators warning them that incorrect readings from a flight-monitoring system could cause planes to rapidly dive after one of its planes crashed in Indonesia a week back, killing all 189 passengers on board, Bloomberg reported.

The warning is based on preliminary findings from last week’s crash of one of the planes off the coast of Indonesia, as per the report. The bulletin will alert pilots to follow an existing procedure to handle the problem.

Earlier, the investigators of the crashed aircraft said an airspeed indicator of the plane was damaged for its last four flights, Reuters reported. However, U.S. authorities cautiously responded to suggestions of fleet-wide checks.
