c'mon, Rana....... tell us how you really feel or opine or assert or whatever. We can handle it.

As a pilot, my worst fear is when the plane does something I didn't command or ask it to do. And to do it at a critical phase of flight.

This "discovery" that a poor AoA input to one or more subsystems can result in runaway trim is scary beyond belief. Especially when it only occurs when flying without the A/P engaged. You know, the so-called hand flying or manual flying exercise that many of we geriatric folks talk about.

My feeling is all the technical aspects about static stability and Boeing's efforts to help with trim and feel and so forth would be better discussed over on the Tech Log as we did with AF447.

Meanwhile we wait for news and maybe another bulletin from Boeing or the U.S. and other country aviation agencies.
