  1. I do not believe engaging the autopilot would have been an option with an extreme out of trim condition. Stick shaker, airspeed warnings, all close to the ground, would be such a distraction it does not surprise me that they did not get to the stab trim cutout switches.
  2. I understand that the MCAS stopped trimming until the pickle switches were released and then the MCAS resumed trimming nose down again, but if the pilots leaned on the pickle switches for a period of time, would the aircraft return to a trimmed state, at least temporarily? In other words did the pickle switches only stop the MCAS but did not trim the aircraft in this situation?
  3. When pilots used the thumb trim switches I understand it stopped the MCAS trim output, but did it reverse the MCAS trim output?
  4. With compressed tires and oleos fully compressed not difficult to see why fuselage hit. I always thought the tailskid was designed to protect the aircraft during T/O only.
