Exactly. Everything about this extraordinary performance defies logic, reason and common sense. It was a deviation so far from normal it had to be deliberate, and almost certainly agreed to or at least uncontested by the pilot not flying. Whatever the intent, this otherwise perfectly airworthy airplane ended up where it did because two competent, experienced pilots put it there.
