150 kts equates to 253 ft/sec and Mr Ellacott stated " Visibility at this time was 9ft or 10 ft maximum"
The thing I can't understand is that if visibility was "9 or 10ft maximum", and they were travelling at "253 ft/sec", how could any manouvre possibly be described as an "attempted escape?"

If reports of the visibility are accurate, the crew could not possibly have seen anything to react to??

Or are you postulating they were responding to the rad alt??

Or something else??
