Incredibly, it looks like it. I'm assuming that the blue spikes on the automatic-trim graph lines are due to MCAS. But, before I dare advance more ideas, we need a clarification of the 4 different lines of the manual and automatic trim inputs. Also, why does one AOA differ from the other when they eventually track each other with a constant offset; it can't be a graph offset often seen in NTSB graphs. Can someone clarify this.
