- Total Time
Is this the same type of plane that lost its tail over queens in NY right after 9-11?
Makes you wondering if they exaggerated that story about the FO horsing around with the rudder to cover up for poor design by the French? I sure wouldn't put it past the modern P.C. version of "international goodwill."
-Too early to judge, but damn if that whole thing didn't just break right off-just like that American crash over queens.
Here's a good photoshop of the recovered tail "superimposed" on a similarly scaled 330 photo:
It did and yes, it does.I thought the AA A300 broke down where it was mounted to the fuselage. This looks like it sheared off well above the mountings.
FBW alternate law
Rudder Travel Limiter Fault
TCAS fault due to antenna fault
Flight Envelope Computation warning
All pitot static ports lost
Maybe 'they' knew we would go hmmm.....
and blame a heavy footed and incorrect pressure on the pedals again?
Instead of what it really is (or seems to be.)
