Fascinating and terrifying indeed for someone who had no idea about these instruments.

Frightening that the guys in the cockpit seemed to have no idea either and tried randomly all kinds of maneuvers to solve the problem.

A very interesting perspective from an AF Airbus pilot : http://www.pnc-contact.com/2015/01/2...n-pilote-29131

Too bad it is in French only.

The fight in court is going on :
- Air France (charged) asks the court to dismiss the second opinion granted to Airbus in 2014 which underlined the responsibility of AF pilots in the tragedy
- Airbus (charged as well) is against but at the same time agrees the get a third opinion
- Families of victims ask the court to order further inquiries because they fear nolle prosequi

Today's decision from the court : the second opinion (which did favor Airbus) is taken off the investigation.

Almost 12 years later .... Just in from AFP/Le Parisien:


Crash du Rio-Paris : Air France et Airbus renvoyées en correctionnelle

C’était une décision très attendue par les familles des 228 victimes du crash Rio-Paris. La cour d’appel de Paris a décidé ce mercredi qu’il y aurait bien un procès contre Air France et Airbus. Les deux entreprises sont en effet renvoyées devant le tribunal correctionnel pour « homicides involontaires » pour leurs responsabilités indirectes dans le crash du Rio-Paris qui avait fait 228 morts en 2009.

Cette décision, réclamée par le parquet général et très attendue des familles des victimes, invalide le non-lieu prononcé en 2019 en faveur de la compagnie et du constructeur au terme des investigations. Les avocats d’Airbus ont immédiatement annoncé un recours en cassation.
