The current issue of Aviation Week and Space Technology reports that Indonesia's Aircraft Accident Investigation Commission is likely to rule that the cause of the accident was suicide by the captain. There have been a number of efforts to re-enact the flifhg from based upon radar and transponder data. I quote the results directly from the Avweek article: "They lead to the conclusion that only deliberate action by a crewmember could have resulted in the steep descent profile that the 737-300 experienced before it crashed on the island of Sumatra, according to persons familiar with the tests."
