However the high speed protection supposed to have recovered the aircraft from the dive. I wonder where was the other pilot and why couldn't the pilot use the same button to reverse the seat.

Vilas,

Interesting further reading if you click the "investigation" link.

https://www.gov.uk/government/public...-february-2014

Apparently, this happened in 2014, and the investigation is now complete.

The photography website just got hold of this info recently, and I was in a hurry to post it, so I didn't mention any details. The other pilot wasn't in the cockpit at the time!

What are the criteria for plunging?

Assuming you're not avoiding a school or hospital, what are the essential elements to become a master plunger?
Can one plunge 10 feet for example. Can a cat plunge, or an apple like Newton had?

Appreciated, but it might now be worth taking a pause and have a look at aerolearners post specifically the link it contains before this thread (possibly) gets deleted by the mods for duplication - the Voyager incident and resultant official reports have already been discussed at length (24 pages worth) over in the military section of this forum.
