What other details don't you know? Are those other details relevant to it being pilot error or not? Are those as of yet unknown details evidence? ;) ;) You want that evidence to corroborate your hypothesis?
if it shows i am wrong then i am fine with that..
there will be more data coming out over the next year or two.. i'm not familiar with russian investigative protocol but it takes years in the USA to get the exact reason for a plane crash..
O Rly? And for how long, do you think, Russians would stand such a thing?
you seem to think they'd have a choice.. russia isn't that powerful
I am not a russophobe, as I am not afraid of Russians.
maybe but your mistrust of them doesn't let you look at things in normal light.
Plk123 seems to have a crystal ball. He can tell you the future of the world ;)
dig out my early posts here and tell me i haven't been right from the start.. plus, you are tend to see where things aren't, nothing that i am going to say is going to sway you one bit.. i based my stand on what i saw right from the start.. and like i said, i doubt anything out there will change the results.
When the autopilot disengaged, it's possible that they attempted to pull up. It's not possible to say from the voice recorder - but there may be a record of their final actions on the other black box. Either way, they had what, 6 seconds to pull up? No way was that plane going to react fast enough!
oh come on now.. seanus knows that russians are monkeying with the evidence..
I still don't understand this part. How did they get so low with autopilot on?
many pilots/planes land via the auto pilot.. so that seems totally reasonable.. if you land and feel a jerk when touching down, that is most likely the autopilot.. pilots are much smoother.
I just can't, for the world of me, understand why they dipped. I've heard some nonsense about terrain dip but that would have been a foolish mistake.
it sure seems they weren't paying attention to the instruments.. and i bet they were looking out the windows and thus slammed the ground as the fog was way heavy..
As in the direction of flight? As far as we know right now (and it can't be said for certain, the data hasn't been published yet) - they were on course for the runway. But certainly, from what's been pieced together, they came in way too steep in the final seconds of flight.
and way off kilter.. the missed the runway by a "mile"
Well, the dip in the terrain is there, as independently verified by different sources. The crew would have been aware of it - but given the situation, the captain may simply have allowed it to escape his mind in the hope of spotting the runway.
bingo but that won't stop seanus from not understanding why..
