ProppedUP, thanks for posting that write up.

I do have a question for you. Noticing that the stick shaker is active most of the last half of the flight, how disconcerting would that be to a relatively inexperienced pilot? I would think that his training instinct is that " shaking stick = bad things, ie stall warning", would/could that have clouded his OODA loop somewhat, resulting in him doing things to correct a stall condition, but without recognizing that he didn't really have the condition present?

I am not a professional aviator, but have been around enough to know that it is drummed into a pilot from day one, stalls are bad OK, don't stall the plane? Seems like that there enough other data present and not considered by the pilot, we will never know, what he was thinking in the last few minutes.
