Hi everyone, my opinion is that a computer failure with this results is highly unlikely but not impossible.

Has anyone consider reading FCOM I 1.27.30 Page 7 ABNORMAL ATTITUDE LAWS?

Not many A32O pilots know in wich configuration they will end up after recovering from this abnormal attitude, this is:

In Pitch: Alternate law without protections with autotrim
In Roll: Ful authority direct law with yaw alternate law

There is no reversion to direct law when the gear is extended

During the abnormal attitude itself the laws are slightly different to the mentioned above.

I am not saying this is what happened but is certainly a scenario not many people are familiar with.
