What a very convenient spin.

The PIC just had an out of character brain fart on this one flight. In all other respects the system within which he was operating was fine and could not practicably have predicted or prevented a one-off, out of character brain fart.

The problem with that spin is that it is not consistent with CASAís ongoing punishment of the PIC. CASAís ongoing punishment is justified on the basis of a chronic defect in the PICís airmanship.

The positions are irreconcileable. Everybody knows why.
