Ed, this column sounded credible to me. What think?

It looks as if three issues are under investigation: Boeing's engineering and operating instructions, pilot proficiency in the airplane, and airline proficiency standards. Investigations take 4-8 months to complete, regardless of the media hoopla. As one pilot observed, "Don't fall in love with your pet theory."

This case sounds like classic runaway trim. Without knowing the exact circuitry of the flight control system, I can't guess whether the pilots took the appropriate corrective action. Perhaps they did the right thing and got the wrong result.

Let's see what the NTSB says. In the meantime, make sure the flight crews can handle this kind of malfunction and get the fleet flying again.

John/AKA Rancid:
Thanks for posting those reports. Those of us from your level, all the way down to mine, grasp the details and understand the language and terminology ....Sadly, the news writers often jump in with unfounded theories just in time to meet the paper's deadlines. Just as an example, the aviation term "stall" has no context to those who "stall" their automobiles. One simple word....with totally diverse meanings.

The FBI is conducting its own investigation now. Like I said they will find where some lower level employees had voiced concerns but some mid or higher level employees ignored or failed to get the messages.

4 Season....Please try to insure that your sources are solid, reliable news and magazine contributors for any raw material.
I'm certain the "rags" such as the National Enquirer, et alia, will thrive on this tragedy for weeks and still never get anything correct.
I'll also bet that every "office blowhard" will be spreading what "he heard from his brother-in-law, Bert.."Who knows all about this stuff.'
I ALSO recall that the NEWSROOM slogan STILL IS..."If it bleeds, it leads."

This'll be investigated by different departments.
