That is not what happened at all.

The runway they approached was not even large enough to be in the onboard database. They performed a visual approach and did the pass much lower than planned over a very short runway. They purposely held the aircraft at the maximum angle of attack (this was the entire point of the demonstration) and they were to slow to apply full power for the go around.


It was purely the result of a badly planned photo op.

Re: I found this article interesting

These engines with these large three or four stage turbo fans do not spin up quickly. They take quite a few seconds to go from low power to climb. The pilot failed to anticipate the amount of power needed when he got to the tree line and by the time the engines spooled up the aircraft was already into the trees. A demonstration gone wrong!!!
