As it happens I'm pretty au fait with it. I did however phrase it somewhat badly - probably my fault for posting under the influence.

@CONF - I've invited you on several occasions to start your own Habsheim thread in AH&N (the logical place to have it, as the incident is over two decades old) - but you have not as yet done so.

@Chris - I think we do know that Alpha Floor was not a consideration for the pilot of AF296, as he *disabled* A/THR (and thus A. Floor) by holding down the disconnect switches to perform the flypast.
