Unfortunately with no TOWS that check would have also had no take off warning on their check if the flaps were up. The check for TOWS should be done prior to flap extension to get the warning. When the captain advanced the thrust levers to test configuration if R2-5 had failed in the air position the TOWS would be silent just as it was for the crash even if the flaps were up.
