I disagree....

Boeing ARE responsible for a poorly designed system, I've yet to meet anyone who doesn't feel the MCAS should not have been certified, allowed to work from a single sensor or able...

It's in my memory items, right under disconnect autothrottle. Do you fly the 737? Next time you're in the sim put the stab forward to 2 units and leave it there. See how you get on, I doubt you'll...

Just to confirm, I'm talking about 'Control airplane pitch manually with control column and main electric trim as needed'

This is pretty basic stuff.

You need to go and read step 2 again. It wasn't completed, at any point after the MCAS AND.

What would disconnecting the autothrottle have achieved? Well you could set thrust to something more...

Were the crew unaware of the Lionair crash and the bulletin released by Boeing? How did this situation differ from that one in respect of MCAS activation?

It's an interesting point whether the...

I don't disagree and I'd have probably done the same. Surely the moment they were back on though you'd be trimming hard?

From the narrative it sounds as if the Capt hasn't grasped what is...

Step 2 - Control airplane pitch attitude manually with control column and main electric trim as needed.

Was this step done? 2 units is nowhere near in trim and significant control column input...

Couldn't agree more.

Memory Items for Airspeed Unreliable?
Memory Items for Unscheduled Stab trim?

It appears the aircraft was never put back in trim after the initial MCAS input and although...

I think it would be wise to wait for the report. If the aircraft wasn't put in trim using the switches as per Boeing recommendation before placing them to cutout and it turns out that the switches...

No it isn't. AFAIK

MCAS will operate regardless of the control column cutout switches.
It will not operate against the control column TRIM switches, or if the stab trim switches are cutout.

You may well believe it's that simple. There are plenty of distractions in the real world from ATC, terrain, weather/turbulence etc. That's before the stick shaker activates and the autopilot...

I can't see any court finding that this was a private flight. There is far too much evidence for them to spin it otherwise and the statement from McKay sinks it completely IMO.

cambridge, yes the operator I work for uses flap as standard for landings on the 757\767......:D

I'm guessing you meant to ask whether operators use Flap 25 or Flap 30 for landing?

126.825 - I agree with you're original post in so far as some people do regularly ignore the speeds given by ATC. I think however that we generally fall into 2 categories.

About 5 years ago I was walking along the coast at night with a group of friends (a few of whom also fly) and we spotted 2 lights out to sea moving backwards and forwards at incredible speed.
