Well, we can't expect ANY pilots to handle it well, if their differences training was limited to a one-hour session on an iPad that didn't even mention MCAS.

Only additional stuff I saw was that the airplane crashed with the autothrottles and A/P engaged and the elevators were split due to cross inputs on the control columns. It was only 18 seconds from...

Yes, but even at the major pax carriers life isn't perfect. Back of the clock flying and contract violations on the part of crew schedulers (who are being pushed) are part of life. But I'm sure it's...

Just got the same sequence of events from an old classmate. Only thing additional was that the FO apparently entered the weather and turbulence with the speed brakes fully deployed. I also got the...

Not to answer for EXDAC, but I flew Capt on the Mad Dog for 12 years and swapped legs if there was another qualified Capt on the crew list (rare), but never swapped seats. I did go to the lav a few...

Well, never say Never, but it would have been unusual, to say the least, in the terminal area.

Only other thing I can think of, is that they ran under the bottom of a cell that Approach wasn't painting for some reason. Could have been a microburst?.... something similar to Delta at DFW in...

I don't buy this hypothesis reported by the Wall Street Journal writer. I really doubt that they were hand flying while driving around in some chop. And if TOGA was selected accidentally for some...

I agree. Like everybody else, I've been in some pretty heavy turbulence and I don't remember that it ever caused me to jam the throttles to the stops. And the acft supposedly was on the A/P, so it...

Don't know for sure, but the quote about fighting the automation was from Greig Feith, former NTSB guy (https://aeronauticsonline.com/ntsb-releases-new-details-about-atlas-air-767-crash/) He must...

I'm sure you're right when you have acft control, as in a high-angle release. But when your nose is suddenly pointed directly at the ground below 10 and the throttles are stuck at max, popping the...

Also read that their speed increased from their assigned 230 kts to 430 kts in the descent, and that at impact it was close to 500 kts.

No, I'm sure they were trying everything humanly possible, exactly the way we all would have been. But if the darn automation wouldn't relinquish control, that would be a horrible feeling.

I instructed on the C-131B in the USAF. We had the ignition analyzers and carried a flight mechanic who could read the analyzer, but he didn't operate the throttles. He was only there to provide...

The C-131 was old and slow, but it was a very comfortable, stable airplane. In 1972-73 when Bendix was developing the first TCAS, we used one with specially calibrated altimeters to run head on...

I might buy "likely would have", but "would have"? Despite everything less than flattering that's been mentioned about these guys, they weren't exactly novices. Plus, the Convair wasn't exactly light...
