I did read other sources. I talk to people who read other sources. Enough to know Airbus hides info from pilots -- critical info such as pitch trim, throttles that don't move as autothrottle adjusts power, and provides no tactile feedback to the stick. Airbus isn't a seat-of-the-pants airplane, you almost have to think like a passenger, not a pilot. That's what I got from reading other sources. Was that the conclusion you hoped I gave you? No? Oh well -- that's the conclusion I reached over the years of this accident being known, as well as other Airbus incidents involving their computers.
I cite Wiki because they have a fairly consice and correct account -- despite your objections and claims of rollbacks and edits.
On AF 447 BEA blamed training, cockpit ergonomics and incorrect procedure. They didn't even mention the role FEP had. It seems the French authorities like to shield Airbus from responsibility and scrutiny.
Here's something Wiki doesn't mention but other sources do: The AF 447 pilots thought they were in an overspeed, not stall. They mis-interpreted stall buffeting as a sign of overspeed. In the context of an overspeed their stick actions make sense. But it's not that simple. The Airbus flight controls don't' talk to each other. The left seater can't tell what the right seater was doing. One of them pulled the stick back all the way and kept it there. I read somewhere, forgot where, that the other pilot did the opposite at the same time. Sorry, no citation for that one. Go look for it yourself.
The crew was confused and even panicked for many minutes. They were passengers in an airplane that was perhaps too smart for it's own good.
1. Did they not see the altimeter unwinding?
2. Did they not see the artificial horizon showing more blue than black?
3. Did they not see the variometer showing a high sink rate?
4. Did the airplane hide / misrepresent reality? Or did the crew just completely ignore what the above instruments were showing?
I hate to pull this card, but have you flown? Have you soloed? Have you felt how an airplane shakes as you near a stall? In a small airplane you can even hear how the sound of the whoosh of the air over the wing changes as you approach a stall. The controls get all mushy. Pity, that AF 447's crew couldn't feel the stick go slack on them as they stalled. Or maybe their training was so lacking that they'd also ignore *that* sign. All I have is a few hours, a few solos and a few landings in a rope-and-pulley Cessna -- but that gives me a fair idea of how it feels to fly an honest airplane. I can't even imagine how it must feel (not feel?) to hand-fly something as fast and heavy as an airliner *with no stick feedback!*
As for the Paris Lawnmower, I'd like to think an airplane which would've done what the control inputs asked for would've flown out of that mess. You keep looking away from the fact that Airbus' FEP has screwed more than a few pilots over.
You think Airbus is innocent, I think their design philosophy is presumptuous.
