If there is one thing CONTINUES to bother me about this - it is the sensationalistic news reporting.  The latest being a statement by CBS News the other night that "The pilot pulled the plane up in a climb that was steeper than the plane was designed for"  (I paraphrase their report - but it was stated as a certitude).

No possibility that - "the plane MIGHT have been caught in the enormous updrafts associated with thunderstorm activity and exceeded its design load".  Far more probable than a pilot with thousands of hours flying the plane outside the envelope.  Let's face it - he had asked for a weather divert - looks like he got a mixture of unlucky (T/Storms are very tricky beasts to look into) and might have been a bit more assertive and said he WAS diverting for weather.

Sorry - thus endeth the rant - but I suspect this is not totally a pilot error.

My hope is that is what happened... they flew into an embedded cell, which can happen around large systems like the one they were trying to traverse.

If it turns out to be another sad instance of pilots discussing various "laws" and trying to point and click their fly-by-wire machine to safety it will be very depressing indeed.
