Interesting reading but the strong inference must remain that the 3 crew at no time seriously considered that they were stalled and at no time applied appropriate inputs to attempt to address a stall. Can't see how yoke/aoa gauges are relevant. Perhaps they would have made a difference, we can never know, but they should not have been needed in any case. Dialogue articulating the pull-up inputs is clear enough on the transcripts so can't think anyone was seriously misunderstood for any appreciable period.

Had the situation finally been appreciated and the subsequent recovery hindered through lost time or absence of some instrument, OK. But it never got to that point.
