  4. Evidence Type: Excerpt from Accident Report
    Evidence: "ANALYSIS ... When the captain took over the controls, he put his right hand on the throttle levers. According to the DFDR the go-around mode was activated at the height of approximately 120 ft which must indicate that the captain or first officer pushed at least one of the two TOGA buttons on the thrust levers. The captain told he had no intention to make a go around. No signs of go-around can be seen in the DFDR elevator control data. According to the investigation commission the TOGA button push must have been unintentional or a so called substitution error ie. [in sic] either pilot has intended to switch off the autothrottle but has selected the TOGA button." (page 38)
    Issue: mode selection may be incorrect (Issue #145) See Issue details
    Strength: +2
    Aircraft: DC-9-83
    Equipment: autoflight: autothrottle
