He tries to give you the facts from the source materials but maybe he got it wrong, maybe replrt is out of date.


The pitot measures the dynamic air pressure and the static ports measure the static air pressure: In calm winds, the windshear warning suddenly sounded. The flight crew did not know it but the aircraft had entered a gentle descent. This was well before investigators knew exactly where the wreckage was it was in ft of water of the coast near Lima, Peruor before the CVR and DFDR had been recovered and analysed.
