You still anticipate blaming the pilots,before all information is available and assessed. Two planeloads of people have died, this is a really serious situation,and requires the most careful analysis.
The cause could be a combination of factors. For example:aircraft design/build defect,failure by the mfr to adequately flag changed characteristics,and pilot error. If it`s just the pilots, suspend them, not the aircraft, and train and qualify better pilots.
Your anticipatory presumption might be right.Or not. Presumption can set the "presumer" on a course of defending the presumption regardless.
Was the DC10 without fault?
