Just from this excerpt:
Sensors in the aircraft that report how high its nose is pointed relative to oncoming air varied by almost 60 degrees. One of the “angle-of-attack” gauges read 15.3 degrees, likely an accurate reading for a plane taking off. The other erroneously read 74.5 degrees - which would suggest a plane pointing almost straight skyward.
One relatively educated pilot with enough experience can get an idea about the expertise of the the experts.
There are secondary indications for the angle of attack. The fact that the guys from Africa didn't recognize the situation accordingly led to additional errors. Maybe they are not to blame entirely - sure. But I highly doubt that they did everything they could.
This link, as many others, contains information that is incomplete or poorly written or somehow distorted.
Just like they tried to make Emirates crew heroes for destroying perfectly good 777 recently, due to incompetency.
Or A330 crew that never managed to recognize the situation the aircraft was in and entered the wrong commands.
Again, around 400 MAXs flew and would've continue to fly without a problem if it wasn't for that crash. Miraculously, in between Lion and Ethiopian those planes worked surviving similar issues.
Now: Boeing is baaad.
Airbus might be the good guys of the day.
Oh no, wait: months ago two lady pilots in India flew with their gear down for half of their flight without even recognizing the problem. I should retract my statement. Airbus are not the good guys, they didn't put an idiot proof system indicating that the gear is down repeatedly. Let's not blame them, let's blame the manufacturer, so in case of something the company to be able to get the insurance.
People are people. They do make mistakes. Accidents happen. The fuss is useless. It harms the manufacturer and many airlines, who, by the way - struggle enough to survive even before situations like that.
