The heavier engines fitted to these aircraft were obviously aimed at Airlines for better fuel economy.
These heavier engines make the nose of the plane tip upwards but a computer then makes compensatory calculations to correct this.
This didn't happen on 2 occasions, killing over 340 passengers/crew in total.
The computer kicked in repeatedly but it became clear to the pilot it wasn't doing its job!! (there was NO pilot error in the judgement)
When this happens, surely the pilot should be able to identify this & once identified, disable it then take over using Manual Controls!!
OK - maybe a bit oversimplified re Protocol & all that but clearly a case of the Computer becoming the Master!!
Computer thought the nose was up but was in fact Level - thus putting the aircraft into a Nosedive.
