Hope the Dubai authorities make the CVR available.
It is also in line with what a passenger on board reported on the Avherald (and I am sure they are reputable enough to have checked him and his account of events out before updating their post). to me it makes the most sence, but that is only my opinion of course! sad circumstances, if this really is not trained, it is a bit like my ´Motto of life´ below.. ""some you lose and others you can´t win""....
the question now is, what will the investigation bring up and what will all in the industry hopefully learn from this, especially relating to Training!
EDIT: a friend who is a tripple Skipper actually tells me this is mentioned in the 777 FCTM, but you really need to look for it and it is not commonly covered in training, as GA training focuses on an aircraft that is still airborne and had not had ground contact & bounced.....
