First, I'll admit I haven't flown an Airbus, I do, however look forward to a FBW plane. But, WRT "multiple warnings", with each warning, th pulled on the side stick and what happened? The warning stopped, in a sense, they were rewarded by the cancellation of the warning and thought they solved the stall. Game Over! They hadn't been trained to assume there were TWO methods of stopping the stall warning--the usual way we all assume it works and the Airbus alternative by reducing airspeed below 60 knots.

I completely agree they should have been trained to see the whole picture and recover by recognizing the ROD and speeds.

Would the TU AMS plane, if it had been an Airbus with the same RA failure leading it to believe it was at zero feet, not have crashed, too?
