"I don't think a competent pilot needs green arrows or any computer generated warnings to recover from a stall. It is so basic, you push down. Stall warning goes off, push down, works every time. Not with these clowns."

Ptretty strong language considering you obviously haven't read the transcripts carefully enough to avoid putting your foot in your mouth.

If you take the trouble to read back you will see that the stall warning was off, UNTIL the nose was pushed forward to get out of the stall and at that point the stall warning came on.

In a pitch dark environment with everything seeming to be in conflict with everything you thought you understood about your aircraft's behaviour, perhaps it was all too easy to become a clown as you so eloquently and kindly put it.
