I owe the first officer, Ahmed Nur Mohammod, a true and heartfelt apology. He called the stab trim cutout and performed admirably. Two-hundred hours or not, he did his job well.

Nobody is questioning that what they faced was a challenging situation. But these aren't recreational pilots out on a Sunday afternoon. These are professional revenue pilots, in theory trained to a...

I'm sorry, but this is a complete hose job by the Ethiopian CAA authority (which has an annual budget of $89,000) and Ethiopian Airlines. "We did everything perfectly". Well RELEASE THE REPORT....

I hear this line all the time. But honestly, if you're spending $100,000 to get a CPL-ME-IA with 25 hours of twinky time, you're a moron.

Anyone who gives up an airline captaincy in his early 30s to sit on his ### for the rest of his life staring at a computer screen ought to have his head examined.

Same discussion every crash. It's a massive technical undertaking for very little benefit. FDR and CVR are nearly always found.

And now back to your flight simulator.

Disavow yourself of that notion immediately. Of course there was a diagnosis. There is ALWAYS a diagnosis, and this is always the first defense people use in these cases.

All I can say is that anyone with an underwear cleaning business in Malaga made a killing that day. When I first saw the ground video I thought that has to be PIO. At least to an extent. No way it...

Give me a break. They found AAF447's after two years at the bottom of the damn ocean. It's been two days and we need some sort of all out remedy? Tell me another widebody crash where they weren't...
