Basic INSTINCTIVE airmanship in ALL airplanes. . .

. . .from day 1 of your flight training, single or multiengine, . . .in order to stop on the runway is to close/retard the throttle(s). It's an instinctive, elementary action that requires no thought processes and no bells and whistles as a reminder.

The two TAM captains were suffering from temporary insanity; there's no warning bells for that.

The debate as to why neither pilot closed both throttles can drag on infinitum, but it's stupefying.
