Some years ago an Air France jet went down in the Atlantic. It had a sensor freeze up and gave false data. The guy flying did all the wrong things.
High technology and automation is great, how to deal with it when a problem a problem shows up is essential . This crash was plane problem followed by pilot error.

Whats confusing about this thus far, is that the media and pilots are talking about the sensors and such. Indicating it could be a serious Boeing issue with these planes. But then on the other hand, witnesses on the ground claim they saw smoke coming out of the plane which doesnt indicate a sensor issue. It will be very interesting to see what the black boxes say.

Where have you seen reports of smoke coming out? That would change everything.

"The Ethiopian Airlines plane that crashed killing 157 people was making a strange rattling noise and trailed smoke and debris as it swerved above a field of panicked cows before hitting earth, according to witnesses. Half a dozen witnesses interviewed by Reuters in the farmland where the plane came down reported smoke billowing out behind, while four of them also described a loud sound."

If true that will sure add a new dimension to this case.
