    ...so, why didn't ATC get retrained to not "slam dunk" aircraft. Maybe it's time for the flight crews to tell ATC "unable" when they "slam dunk" aircraft?? That will teach ATC by messing up their "flow control"! Who has the "final command" for safety anyway?? It's time to quit accommodating ATC!!

    That's not what caused this incident. When the descent is performed by the FMS, the airspeed is given a window of +/-knots. When Mach is controlling, as in this case, the upper edge of the window is near maximum Mach (Mmo). It doesn't take much to exceed the upper edge of that window. The A-320 has the same problem. The Captain's response was not appropriate as the first correcting action should be the speedbrake which almost always corrects the situation. But... jets are for kids, eh rotor boy? :p

    ...sure, just like falling through on a practice autorotation because you failed to consider spool up lag of the engine causing a hard landing. Not much you can correct for other than ride it out until it stops.

    How many crashes happened because the "boards" were left out?

    • American Airlines Flight 965 – Forgetting to deactivate the spoilers while climbing to avoid a mountain contributed to this crash on 20 December 1995.

    The Wikipedia quote doesn't mention that because of this accident, all US civilian airliners were modified to automatically retract the spoilers when high power was selected. No such accidents since then.

    ...and yet, it took a major loss of life to make a change. It truely is a "tombstone mentality".
