Reading the transcript of the last few moments was almost heartbreaking as much as it was a privilege. I got the sense that the pilots, to a man (like many operators of complex systems) seem to have put too much faith into that system and I personally suspect in this case alpha floor protection. As is often the case when operating complex systems, it seems to have come down to [very basic] training. Lets hope their actions and the terrible price they paid remains forever in the training vade mecum, if it isn’t there already.
