Thanks, 'bird, I am almost "all in" withya on this line of inquiry/reasoning. I.e. not necessarily a poorly installed or faulty sensor, but something in that "box". And recall we had a plane going down in that area a few years back due to a bad solder joint on a card.

I also note the noisy data that was on the flight data recorder which you pointed out over a month ago. Almost like there is a bad connection or poor solder joint or ....... I assume the FDR got its AoA plot downstream of the "box" and not directly from the actual vane, but your diagram doesn't show where else AoA data goes from the sensor. I also doubt that the FDR decodes the synchro/resolver analog signals, huh?
