Aero-News Quote of the Day
"The flight crew was blameless for this crash and
everyone investigating the crash knows it. It’s just easier
to blame the dead crew than to blame the manufacturer who failed to
equip this airliner with modern anti-ice equipment. The airplane
suffered a tail stall as soon as the flaps 15 setting was selected
and the crew did what they were taught – they reversed the
procedure and retracted the flaps. The captain, in spite of the
hideous criticism for having nonessential conversations below
10,000 feet, was otherwise professional and all required briefings
were carried out."
