However, you might add, at no point was thrust reduced from 94% N1, which allowed the airspeed to reach around 375kts.... which at the final ND trim was unrecoverable.

None of the crew trim inputs at any point were sufficient to counter the MCAS ND trim events, which is really where things went wrong. Had they trimmed sufficiently and hit the cutouts, we'd not be have this exact discussion.

Also, the AOA was not offset for the entire flight, it appears to an event that occured some8 seconds after takeoff. Bird strike maybe?
