This has been an educational and informative thread. Hopefully this is all resolved safely.

That is interesting. Maybe a CoG problem, or misconfigured T/O trim?

Or if they had an AOA sensor fault they get a stick shaker straight away, crew are startled and arrest pitch up, a/c rapidly...

I think the intent behind the system is not unusual, but with one AOA sensor? I can't quite get my head around that.

Why not have it read from both, if they disagree, go INOP and warn via ECAM? I...

I understand the 737 (at least since the CFM56 variants) has been somewhat pitch sensitive to power changes, but I'm curious about the underlying need for MCAS, as per this article:

This is highly unusual, right? Aviators have been expected and encouraged to learn such things.

What a terrible thing.

The TU-154 - especially a low-cycle mil pony - should be a pretty solid jet. I hope they get to the bottom of it quickly.

An unpressurised wheel-well isn't surviveable, so I'm guessing the other guy must have been in the hold?

I know it's different days but I used to take a lot of comfort in seeing the flight deck door open and the crew not hidden away.

Is it possible he was incapacitated by faulty oxygen apparatus, possibly becoming irrational? I.e. panicking into initiating a descent prior to passing out.

I think the blackened mountainside is just the rock colour - reason being the painted parts of the wreckage that you can see in the photos don't appear to have been sooted or charred.

I just would not have expected the remainder of the airframe to survive anything like to the extent it has. It appears borderline surviveable, and the fuselage (what is visible) still looks circular.

Is that not one of the primary instrument displays (none are visible in the nose wreckage, only the standbys)?

It's definitely a screen of some sort, and it's the right colour.
