fdr, thank you for the additional information and safety views.

Reflecting on the 737; yes another aircraft. However, not ‘just another’ in comparison with others.
What is the level of change in the 737 in comparison with other types, i.e. % increase in thrust, aircraft mass, … Also, noting the increased tail-plane area, adapted wing shape and profile.
These changes are not seen as cause, but contributing factors influencing normal operations, which over time have increased the complexity of operations.

Re passengers expectation - the same for the crew, but safety is judged on outcome, where the gap between the extremes - expectation and reality, has to be managed by the crew.
Crews create safety; the crew in this incident recovered the situation, a safe outcome.
There have been many opinions as to how the event was initiated, but few (none) about the recovery - how was this achieved.

P.S. only flew the T28 at half boost (3 flts). A7 LoC, hands off everything (3 flts)
