Probably not the words you want to hear, but crash investigators have concluded that the pilots of the doomed Air France which crashed into the Atlantic in 2009 (killing 228 souls) were not trained to handle the jet when it stalled. Well that’s just dandy isn’t it? The report claims “Neither of the pilots formally identified the stall situation” despite the plane started dropping and the friggin alarm ringing for nearly a minute. Meanwhile in Air France’s camp they are saying fooey, the problem was the stall alarm malfunctioned and that their pilots showed “courage and determination in these extreme conditions,” Tough call but I think I am going for Team – Crash Investigators on this one!
Psst Air France could face manslaughter charges in connection with the crash
