Crash Of AA Crash 11/2001 Blamed On Co-Pilot Error

Wed Oct 27, 2004 1:51 am

I just saw a report that said that the crash happened because the co-pilot reacted too aggressively to turbulence, putting too much stress on the rudder. For those of you pilots out there, what does this mean? Was the plane tipping on a wing and the pilot tried to ccompensate with the rudder? Also, what kind of turbulence was this, wake turbulence? Thanks.

It's an entirely different kind of flying; all together.
