With all due respect regarding the comment about the Air Inter crash; why
is it "very difficult" to believe that mode confusion was the cause of the
crash?  After all, didn't the cockpit crew of a Northwest MD-80 forget to
extend the wing flaps (via mechanical actuation) just prior to take-off
causing a crash and the deaths of some 160 passengers?
