Oh, let's see what comes out of that trial!

RootsAir, did you get my mail/messages?

It's not about AIRBUS. it's not about BOEING. It's all about the beauty of FLYING.

As the 2nd link says " the pilots actually set the airliner to descend at a rate of "3,300" feet per minute" it sounds like it was a fault of the pilots.
Anyway, time (court) will tell...

A 3.3� descend gradient requires a sinkrate of around 760 fpm @ 140kts

We got to analyze this case several times in CRM training, as it is one of this very classic cases. As far as I remember there have been two Captains on board. They didn't like eachother and none of them could admit to his own mistakes. This went on, became worse and worse... and the sad result we all know.
