Analysis of Air France A330 crash

This was just sent to me today by a friend in the UK. Good description of why the plane crashed.

From this moment, Bonin’s behaviour is strange. The flight recorder indicates that, without saying anything, he pulled back on the stick and, seemingly against all reason, kept the nose up, causing a synthesised voice to warn, “Stall! Stall!” in English as the airspeed began to drop dangerously.

Indeed, it is hard to believe AF447 would have fallen from the sky if it had been a Boeing.

Folks that fly in an Air Bust might wish yo remember that comment.
