The article states the findings are that the pilots correctly followed the emergency procedures provided by Boeing. It can't be much clearer than that.
Yes the article does say that, in fact it says, and I quote;
The country’s transport minister, Dagmawit Moges, did not cite the aircraft’s controversial anti-stall system by name, but said: “The crew performed all the procedures repeatedly provided by the manufacturer but was not able to control the aircraft.
The final part of Boeing's Operating Instructions state the TRIM CUTOUT switches are to moved to the CUTOUT position and stay there for the rest of the flight.
The only way for the pilots could have repeatedly performed the instructions was to have repeatedly moved the TRIM CUTOUT switches back to the operating position in contravention of the Boeing instructions. No doubt you see the incongruity of what is in that article to what is in the Boeing Instructions? Therefore the pilots cannot have performed the Boeing instructions repeatedly and also done them correctly.
That brings me back to what I said in my other post, the pilots either didn't understand the instructions or didn't follow the instructions correctly.
With all due respect, as you clearly know quite a bit about planes and piloting, I'll rely on the official finding as the authoritative word.
As a general observation, from day one, your posts appear to be consistently anti pilot and pro Boeing over the two disasters. Yet, from what I read, the general consensus seems to be coming down on anti Boeing and pro pilots (but, clearly, more time is required before we will know for sure).
These two crashes have resulted in a tragic loss of life. I just think we need to wait to fall back on facts before attributing blame.
