As an interested lay-person, I have read quite a few CVR transcripts ending a few seconds after the GPWS goes off. It doesn't seem to do very much except give the pilots an unhappy last several seconds of life rather than blissfully ignorant last few seconds. Of course, when the plane doesn't crash, I don't get to see the CVR transcripts. How often does the GPWS save planes? Michael W.
