Re: AirAsia Indonesia flight QZ8501 missing / crashed

The report into last December’s AirAsia crash suggests significant parallels with the Air France disaster of 2009. In both incidents, a technical issue helped trigger a chain of events in the cockpit where the pilots’ commands took the plane out of control. And on both occasions, a possibly disorien...
