I've seen the images of the crash as many of you did, and I wonder
if anybody has any idea of what happened, because the overwater
landing was done completely flapless and the left spoilers
completely open causing the unadvisable roll to the left on finals.
This was in my opinion the cause for so many fatalities.
If the landing had been performed properly (full flaps, slats
and level) maybe nobody would have died!
(after all the aircraft was quite light...)
Any comments?
