I always wondered if they anticipated the presence of low deck of scattered clouds (around 1000 ft) above the water level. You can't really spot such tiny island when you are above them but if you go...

Such aircraft could be retrieved and brought to another airport by company's test pilot. Yes, they can obtain a ferry permit and fly it out on a single engine (sufficiently empty of course). It is up...

Disagree - AOA should always be there, specially in view of whole recent slew of accidents where AOA were busted. You don't want to watch AOA - fine, it occupies probably less than 2% of HUD display.
