@CONF iture:

Again, you're taking selective quotes and turning them around. In the case of Habsheim, it would have *had* to be a near-instant response, because the Captain did not apply full back-stick until a few seconds (exact values are earlier in the thread) before impact.

And the supposition that the AoA was restricted to A. PROT is also unsubstantiated. As I recall from earlier in the thread, the AoA was in fact slightly more than 15 degrees - 15.4 if memory serves me correctly. You have the Gordon Corps demonstration video showing that even keeping the thrust on, full back stick will initially get you a little more than 15 degrees AoA. You've had other posters tell you that the transition from that state to full A. MAX takes time to achieve in order to maintain stability and to allow for introduction of bank if necessary.

You put the difference down to CONF FULL vs. CONF 3, but have not substantiated that with hard evidence.

The video would have been the original cassette from the camcorder which filmed the flypast and subsequent crash.
