    Airbus

    The only thing I found strange about this is that it reached 44 Degrees and 82 knots?? At that speed and attitude you wouldn't recover such a heavy aircraft... Not mentioning 44 Degrees attitude you have to be a bit stupid not to realize you have that attitude...

    Regards,

    I also question the accuracy of this report.

    I doubt you could unintentionally get a 44 degree pitch without knowing it. The only thing I could think of is if it had stalled and the pitch was uncontrollable causing the large pitch. But if this had happened recovery would probably not be possible!

    I think depending how old the equipment is. On Go Around or in A/P it will pitch up high to maintain altitude, with or without power. Perhaps when he manually forced the thrust levers full, there was enough to recover. But I would think you would have to have a perfect scenario.

    I've played with an B737-300 level D, quite a few years ago and did the same thing.... Of course I didn't know what I was doing.... LOL

    Anyway, I could be way of base..... it certainly is not an Airbus, much safer, don't think that would of happened, what ya say Roberto.

    44 degrees of pitch is way too Excessive Matt and you can not recover from a stall with a plane so heavy... Although what you mention about the 737 Pitching for altitude with or without power is true. The thing is that the stall itself is the thing unrecoverable... I mean they where way passed the stall speed...

    And if in approach with a lot of Drag...

    Thanks Roberto, I agree. To me too it would seem unlikely to be able recover. I wouldn't think the engines would be able to spool up fast enough to even respond.

    Interesting information though.....

    LOL... OK would you believe an Airbus....

    No, seriously... look at the lighting of the cockpit, lighting behind the seat. Daylight outside, lights on the panel full brightness.

    OK, 'FINE' I can't see pass an Airbus, LOL
