A TOCWS that needs manually checking every take-off by simulating a bad take-off config, won't self test easily and quickly, nor is designed to be particularly fault-tolerant is to me, plain and simply, in dire need of some re-engineering in today's more hurried and busy cockpits - the reasoning that these are fairly new aircraft but entitled to inherit 'legacy' systems from fairly old designs... is starting not to cut the mustard anymore!

In short.. I think quite a few eyes have been opened by this very tragic accident. I really do hope a Public Court of Inquiry does an extremely thorough job into itemising every salient issue here....and fairly briskly!
