I always thought the WSJ was above this sort of sensationalist reporting. Speculation is their business, but this just seems out of character. Oh well, they're going to follow the rest of the media down into the septic tank to make a buck, it won't be my buck.

Pilot Error Suspected in Fatal Atlas Air Cargo Crash - WSJ

From what I recall, Paztor usually covers aviation pretty well. He leads with “federal investigators.” So if there were any pooch fornication going on, I’d start there.

Andy does a pretty good job on aviation stuff and, in the past, has had good sources. That said, this particular scoop sounds like crazy talk, but we'll have to see how it plays out.

i don't think the WSJ screwed it up. Some of the wording might be poor but thats about it. I think a lot of you will be surprised when they release the CVR/FDR data and final report.
I seriously doubt we’ll see a set of circumstances mirroring this WSJ report. If we do, it’ll probably be the first time I’ll have ever believed that the NTSB is trying to cover something up. It’s just too outlandish to be credible.

it's pretty plausible. descending with the flaps at 1, someone accidentally hits GA, thrust levers move forward, plane pitches up, quite over correction overpush to stop the climb, too late to recover. How it got to that point I haven't a clue but its very plausible. I did it in the sim and there is no recovering from it if that's the scenario.

I can see pitching down. 50* nose down? Really? Is that really what happened?
