I'm sorry, but your definitions and use are somewhat innacurate or outright wrong. Perhaps as you say a cultural gap, but I own Neil WIlliams' book so I am aware of the terminology in the UK. To your...

Sorry for the late reply- busy week and a hockey tournament for kids so hadn't checked in for awhile.

It's a great question to ask, both to illuminate why this was not a possible out...

No boofhead, you've got it completely backwards. I'm going to go out on a limb here and speak for PilotMike and others: Our issue is that you are taking substantially incomplete information and...

I lied.

I read your post Yoko-

And I laughed out loud. (You know us emotional folks- we do stuff like that...)

You honestly think that in the mayhem of that cockpit there was some fancy schmancy...

Wrong on the first statement and wrong on the second. (And yes, I know MCAS runs for 9.2 seconds. Shocking that you would focus on that detail.)

Once again I have to respectfully state that you are (to use your own vernacular) barking up the wrong tree in your quest to pin this on the crew.

I'll post the FDR traces link at the end of this...
