    Re: Indonesia plane crash: All 189 passengers presumed dead in latest aviation disast

    Last month an Atlas Boeing 767 crashed in Texas but it's not MSM headline news because only three pilots died. READ THIS

    While the NTSB had initially stated that the aircraft had pitched down “in response to column input”, it subsequently revised this, saying the downward pitch was the result of “nose-down elevator deflection” – an amendment designed to avoid premature conclusions being drawn over the relation, if any, between actions in the cockpit and the unusual attitude of the aircraft.Although the initial use of the term “column input” might suggest there was a nose-down command of some degree, the NTSB has not clarified the extent of any pressure placed on the yoke – or the reason – nor whether the elevator deflection was in line with the command.
    But the extraordinary transition to a 49° nose-down pitch, which took place over 18s, is central to the inquiry. The NTSB has not specified whether the aircraft was in cloud at the time of the transition, but it had clearly emerged from the cloud base into good visibility during the last few seconds of its descent.With investigators yet to establish conclusively whether there is a connection between control column movements and the aircraft’s excessive nose-down attitude, the possibility of a mechanical reason for the elevator deflection is yet to be ruled out.
    This accident maybe another pilot/automation interface issue. The plane did something unexpected and the pilot was not trained to handle the deviation from normal flight created by the automated system.

    Could be a true case of runaway trim. Tragic in any case.

    Remember its the on the airlines too. They had the option to included these 2 safety features and decided not to pay the extra money. Just like with cars today. There are many accident avoidance systems available at extra cost on some models but people choose not to pay the extra money. I have heard that American has these features on their planes. Not sure if Southwest does also.
