I thought it was all going to make sense today...

I was wrong. I can't understand how a pilot could pitch his a/c up 2500 feet without realising it. He knew he had UAS but surely he didn't think he had unreliable altitude? 7000 feet per minute upwards after you get a stall warning? What happened in the 11 seconds between the AP disconnect and the pilot's realisation that he had UAS? Did he pitch up, get a stall warning or did he get a stall warning and then pitch up? What was the engine speed at this time? What BEA has done here is worse than useless. They have tried to provide details to quash rumours but by providing less information than is necessary to properly understand what happened. I think they should have either given out everything or nothing.
