OT: Video of 737 Runaway Trim Procedure in a Simulator

Here is a video showing a runaway trim on a 737 shortly after takeoff and how to deal with it. Notice the two large trim wheels spinning, making noise, right next to the pilots. You'll see them recognize the trim system running amok, quickly hitting the two cut off switches, then using manual trim, by hand cranking those wheels to set correct trim. They have to keep adjusting the trim manually during the return to the airport, as the plane speed and configuration changes, to maintain a neutral or close to neutral force on the controls.

Also, a MEMORY item for 737 pilots is that if you set the pitch to 4 deg up and power to 75%, the plane will fly just fine. Yet these pilots didn't follow the straightforward procedure to do that, to stop the trim from running amok.

It wasn’t a runaway trim, that was deliberately invoked.

Hardly surprising given that they turned the 'runaway trim' on themselves.

Not when the MCAS is still shoving the nose down it doesn’t.

They didn’t run amok, they were doing what the MCAS told them to do.

No need to go any further with you, village idiot troll! Of course it was deliberately invoked, that's how they train for it fool.
How can one dope be wrong on so many things?
737 is a heavy (It's not even close)
The 737 MCAS doesn't rely on just one AOA sensor (It does)
The FAA would never approve that design (They did)
The data from the FDR on Lion Air has not been released (It was in Oct/Nov)
Boeing doesn't know what caused the Lion Air Crash
The 737 can't be trimmed mechanically (It can)
It's impossible to have a design where it's both electrical or mechanical trim (BS because all 737s and most other planes have both)
The Cessna 150 can't stall (It can, stall speeds are listed by Cessna)
Denies that it's common for FAA to put out directives soon after a crash, requiring inspection of what they believe caused the problem in all similar planes in service. (Of course it's common)
The AOA sensors were a known problem with the 737 Max and were already being replaced at the time of Lion Air crash (total lie)
You have a 50" CRT TV (posted lame pic of a much smaller TV, no tape measu re, no model, nothing to verify it
Electric pole transformers can glow orange hot, it's not uncommon (Still waiting for the pics of some of those)
Former leaders have no say in the details of their state funeral (beyond st upid)
What a total moron!

So its useless as evidence of what should happen when its not runaway trim at all.
