Your term "blaming the pilots" is a simple binary and that is incorrect.
I suspect that fault lies iwith Boeing somewhere around 90%. But 10% with the crew. And that's still important.
It's been a while since I read the prelim report, but didn't in fact the fateful Lion Air flight have a pilot successfully retrimming for some time and then the aircraft did its plunge shortly after control was transferred to the other pilot?
Ignoring the lack of communication on the transfer, that would mean that one pilot was sharp enough to recognize a solution and the other one wasn't. And we're not talking about a disengaged jumpseat pilot here, either.
You are making the same mistake as the NYT article author. Making assumptions and drawing inference on the actions and abilities of the pilots to suit a narrative without the evidence to so do - it is not in the report. (at least it is without the vitriolic personal character assassinations of the NYT article thankfully).
Exactly. It's my opinion from all I've read, mostly in this forum. We're all offering our assumptions and drawing inferences here.
The only valid information for those last moments of the flight is that in the report. It is entirely possible to paint an entirely different story that may actually be closer to the truth. Too many fall for the rhetoric that purports to be knowledgeable without any relationship to reality.
