Thanks Burger T. makes more sense than in humpys at dark o'clock.
May not be relevent in this case [let's see the official report], but does the LSAS inhibit stall protection at low altitude - eg 'bus below 100'ra?

Also the statement:

"During landing, after spoiler deployment is commanded, LSAS initiates
Positive Nose Lowering (PNL) to assist in transitioning the
nose wheel to the runway after main gear touchdown."

...is a bit chilling after seeing the video - and I guess explains the requirement for bounced landing training on this type.

Ironbutts57 - sorry I had the count wrong?
