I don't understand why a malfunctioning airspeed indicator would cause a 757 to crash. At the point in the flight when the pilots discovered that there was a discrepancy, weren't they at full-throttle anyway? If they weren't at maximum power, why didn't they go to it immediately and put the nose down some when the stick started shaking (didn't it shake for over a minute?)? Can anybody help clue-in a non-pilot?
