Now I'm confused. The RACAL report puts the best guess at the waypoint change being approx 21 seconds before impact, which is after the calculated switch off of time of the TANS. Does that make...

Since no-one knows what those circumstances were, how can anyone know what a reasonable person might or might not have done?

BEagle,

Having read the Argyll new report you helpfully posted, I scrolled down and read the comments. I have to say I was somewhat surprised by the last few. If what is written is true, it...

Engpil,

Your post raises a couple of quite relevant questions, and merits a few clarifications.

The clarifications first. It's probably a generalisation to say that all software has faults,...
