First officer pushed forward and Captain pulled back on the yoke. Sad story, rip. Looking forward to read the final report and conclusion.
F.O. hadn’t the best record.
The NTSB says that the first officer failed proficiency evaluations during his training at Atlas Air, which operates Amazon Air flights, and at his prior job at Mesa Airlines. He also washed out of training at two other airlines, which he concealed when he applied for work at Atlas, claiming that he had been doing freelance real estate work and taking college classes during that period of time.
