471 - re Atlas Air crash

Hi,

The circumstances as described by NTSB are reminiscent with a recent Antonov 148 crash, where the crew shortly after takeoff in IMC firewalled the throttles and pitched down and crashed after they received conflicting airspeed indications, trying to regain the airspeed they actually had.

I don't remember you discussing that one on the podcast.

Best regards,
