As I have said before, this thread was started as a result of the recent accident in Thailand. I am not going to speculate as to the cause of this accident but a discussion on anti-skid brakes and hence ABS brakes is in line with this topic. And before you tell me ABS on cars is different to anti-skid brakes on aircraft, I know. They are used for different reasons but the concept of how they work is essentially the same. Additionally there is vastly more engineering info to be found on the net regarding ABS which makes it easier to talk about them.

Now if you think there is something I or others have missed on this subject, I suggest you speak up now.
