Bird strike theory isnt in the preliminary but in this thread a logical solution for the AoA values was presented earlier. If the AoA vane detaches due to for example a bird strike, the heating failure warning is explained. Also, the counterweight would case it to turn to 90 degree, exept for acceleration forces. It seems to reach 75 degree(measuring limit?) and stay there until A/C enters negative G, then the reading seems to follow the minus G. It seems to be affected by negative G-forces as a free turning counterweight would.
