Soerjanto Tjahjono, head of Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Committee told reporters that after one flight from Bali to Jakarta - the last flight before the crash - the left and right AOA sensors were found to disagree by 20 degrees.
Officials from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau are assisting the Indonesian authorities with the downloading and analysis of the flight data recorder recovered last week.
Boeing has issued a warning to airlines using its 737 MAX planes after a sensor failure was identified as a potential cause of the crash of a passenger flight near Indonesia.

Opportunity knocks. Breaking Bad film in the works
The movie has a tentative title of " Greenbrier ", and will follow " the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom ". The Journal also reports that the project now has the working title Greenbriar - though that could just be a holding name.
"Any action the FAA would take regarding that incident would have to wait until we have findings, until we have information", Elwell said in Washington.
His agency was asking Boeing and USA authorities what action to take to prevent similar problems on this type of plane around the world, he added. The person asked not to be named because he wasn't authorized to speak about the issue.
Boeing declined to comment. Boeing has sent experts to Indonesia to assist with the investigation.
Boeing said it is continuing to work with the Indonesian investigation into the October 29 crash.
"I'm still of the opinion that losing airspeed on the airplane shouldn't result in losing the airplane", Cox said. There are three separate systems to calculate speed and altitude, and there are a variety of measures pilots can take when speed readings become unreliable.

The integration was not a smooth one , and the Anglophone minority complains of marginalization by the Francophone majority. The government did away with presidential term limits several years ago, part of a trend in Africa that has dismayed many.
"After 10 minutes in the air the plane dropped as if it was losing power".
The confirmation of Flight 610's condition comes as divers continue to search for the aircraft's missing cockpit voice recorder (CVR), commonly known as a black box, which could help investigators piece together the plane's final moments before it crashed. "That happened several times during the flight", he said.
The JT610 flight, carrying 181 passengers and eight crew members, crashed at S 5 49.052 E 107 06.628 after departing from Soekarno-Hatta Airport on Oct 29 at 6.20am.
Investigator Nurcahyo Utomo said investigators need to review maintenance records, including what problems were reported, what repairs were done including whether components were replaced, and how the repairs were tested before the 2-month-old plane was declared airworthy. In 2015, a wasp nest plugged the sensors on an Allegiant Air jet leaving St. Petersburg, Florida, forcing pilots to cut the flight short and land in Orlando. The malfunction can cause the plane's computers to erroneously register an aerodynamic stall, causing the aircraft to abruptly dive to regain the airspeed it needs to keep flying.
Bloomberg says the plane's velocity was uncharacteristically high, possibly touching speeds of 600 miles an hour as it hit the water.
