The fateful Air France Flight 447

Popular Science had an article last year about the Air France 447 which vanished over the Atlantic two years ago. What was great about the article was the blow-by-blow commentary by a pilot & writer based on the info from the Flight Data Recorder. What it really gets down to is the state of chaos in the cockpit, a questionable break by the senior most pilot & letting the plane been piloted by an inexperienced(by comparison) candidate. All 228 passengers on-board perished almost instantly!

The Telegraph has also published an article this past week based on the crash & questioned the design of the Airbus instruments themselves, pretty good read too!
