WHAT BROUGHT THE PLANE DOWN? The same thing that brought AA Flight 587 down. Both planes were an Airbus. When these planes get into storms and turbulence you CANNOT be aggressive with the RUDDER to level the plane. Doing this will cause a crash AS PROVEN WITH THE AIRBUS. This plane? Flying at 500 mph with winds of 100 mph and HEAVY TURBULENCE...the plane has to be leveled. The only way to level it is using the RUDDER...Using the RUDDER aggressively on an AIRBUS will cause a CRASH everytime!
