The solid red line shows the actual route. The dashed line indicates the planned route beginning with the position of the last transmission heard. All times are UTC.

After having attended the briefing between the two co-pilots, the captain left the cockpit to rest at Probably two to three minutes after this the aircraft encountered icing conditions the cockpit voice recorder recorded what sounded like hail or graupel on the outside of the aircraft, and the engine anti-ice system came on and ice crystals started to accumulate in the pitot tubes pitot tubes measure how fast the aircraft is moving through the air.

Without the auto-pilot, the aircraft started to roll to the right due to turbulence, and Bonin reacted by deflecting his side-stick to the left. During the next 30 seconds, the aircraft rolled alternately left and right as Bonin adjusted to the altered handling characteristics of his aircraft.

This action was unnecessary and excessive under the circumstances. The icing event had lasted for just over a minute. The trimmable horizontal stabilizer THS moved from three to 13 degrees nose-up in about one minute, and remained in that latter position until the end of the flight.

As the aircraft began to descend, the angle of attack rapidly increased toward 30 degrees. A second consequence of the reconfiguration into alternate law was that stall protection no longer operated. Indeed, the switch into alternate law occurred precisely because the computers, denied reliable speed data, were no longer able to provide such protection — nor many of the other functions expected of normal law.

Included in these procedures were rules concerning the responsibilities of contracting states in the event of an aviation accident on their soil. This is a book about air accidents written from the point of view of the crash investigation agencies. It describes the investigations and the conclusions reached and subsequent events. The NTSB issues an accident report following the investigation. The reports listing is sortable by the event date, report date, city, and state.

Noticing the various alarms going off, he urgently asked the two crew members: Roughly 20 seconds later, at From there until the end of the flight, the angle of attack never dropped below 35 degrees. From the time the aircraft stalled until its impact with the ocean, the engines were primarily developing either percent N1 or TOGA thrust, though they were briefly spooled down to about 50 percent N1 on two occasions.

The engines always responded to commands and were developing in excess of percent N1 when the flight ended. First officer Robert responded with: Bonin, realizing the situation was now hopeless, said: Its pitch was During its descent, the aircraft had turned more than degrees to the right to a compass heading of degrees.

The Airbus was destroyed on impact; all passengers and crew on board were killed instantly by extreme trauma.
