    This seems to be a pretty accurate description of the fateful fatal last few minutes in the cockpit of AF 447 before it plunged into the Atlantic Ocean. Clearly pilot error was the major factor. Really scary that they had plenty of time to correct that situation and no one knew what to do. Maybe the scariest thing of all is that the joysticks are on the outside of the plane and the person in the left seat doesn't know what the person in the right seat is doing.
