Unfortunately, no survivors. There was a patient onboard too. No word on the cause.
I'm not a pilot, nor did I stay in a Holiday Inn last night, but when I see this theory I wonder if a pilot's mistrust in his instruments ties back to the 737Max problems. Instruments and systems fail, as do humans. How can we improve that failure rate?I found a YT video that shows the ADSB data. It has the appearance of spatial disorientation. The flight was at night, in IMC. I took Private Pilot Ground School quite a few years ago and got a light/mild introduction to spatial disorientation... The real thing is much more powerful than what I experienced. In short, your "ears" tell you that you're going one way and your flight instruments are showing something else and it's very difficult to ignore your senses and trust the instruments as you're instructed to do.
If I had to guess, the airplane was probably on autopilot and then at some point, the pilot began to experience the spatial disorientation, didn't believe the instruments, and began hand-flying instead according to "feel" instead of via what the instruments are showing. Just my guess, and and it's probably the guess of a few aviation buffs too.
It has to do with the human response to what it perceives. Not anything related to Super Max.I'm not a pilot, nor did I stay in a Holiday Inn last night, but when I see this theory I wonder if a pilot's mistrust in his instruments ties back to the 737Max problems.

Robin Hays, a Stagecoach resident and a former flight nurse, said she heard the sputtering plane fly over her house before crashing behind her property.
Because of Human Factors.I get that it's the human response, but knowing pilots are trained to trust the instruments, I was just wondering if they're doubting them and why.
