How long do you need to have the column pushed forward for you to be in a 49* degree dive?


Assuming thrust is at max before doing so, I'd say it would take a deliberate push to accomplish that.

Re: Atlas Air 3591 Down in Trinity Bay, Texas

It seems a lot of the discussion here does not mention the idea of an intentional pitch down input on the controls to 49 degrees, have I missed out on some facts that 100% rule out pilot suicide? No, but you have missed out on the basic human notion that you don't go there until all the other possi...

Ground an airplane is a big deal. Most likely someone knows something that is not public. These decisions don't come lightly. If they were to release a public comment saying there was a design flaw related to these accidents, it would cause more problems than they already have. The media is already...

Re: Atlas Air 3591 Down in Trinity Bay, Texas

the engines increased to maximum thrust, and the airplane pitch increased to about 4° nose up and then rapidly pitched nose down to about 49° in response to column input. The stall warning (stick shaker) did not activate.” Geez, from the way its worded, the input came from the PF? Does not sound go...
