a sane person will always make the choice they believe will not end in failure. of course they only go on what they believe, what they have learned,
what they have saw other people do and their own experiences. so if people will avoid choices they know will end in failure then why do so many

would not have made that choice.
now here you sit pointing out the obvious that nothing they could do was going to help, that's because YOU ALREADY KNOW information they did not
have, but they also had an opportunity to put the plane on the ground before their fatal one last try and again the information they had at the time
DID NOT reveal to them it would be fatal otherwise why would they have made that choice instead of putting it on the ground.
you're using hindsight bias and that will always lead you to the wrong conclusion and lay blame where it does not belong. once you understand the new
