What is amazing is the pilots failure in the Aeroperu and Caribbean 757 accidents to use all the instruments availible to them. In the Caribbean accident the stand-by Airspeed and altimeter would have functioned normaly. In the Aeroperu the crew would have still had Radar altitude in addition to a GS indication provided by the inertial navs. Both crews should have been able to surmise their a/s from thrust vs angle of attack. The departure in aviation from good ole stick and rudder is begining to rear its ugly head.
