That's your opinion, but BA038 was never anywhere near alpha max after the FMS was taken offline and manual control established - in fact it should not have been anywhere near Alpha Max even under FMS control (although the FMS did order a relatively alarming pitch-up initially) because of the FMS's own limitations.

I'm still not convinced by your arguments on the Hudson incident either - but I'm not going to argue the point.
