For example, something similar to Qantas Flight 72.
Assuming the Angle of Attack sensors are faulty and give bogus data - for example, that the Angle of Attack is 20 degrees, or the maximum Angle of Attack when the plane is flying normally and in no danger of stalling.
The flight protection systems are going to kick in and try and pitch the plane down because the computers will think the plane is stalling or about to stall because of the (bogus) Angle of Attack readings.
Would the computer still be restricted in how far it can pitch the nose down? For example would it suddenly angle down but stop at 10 degrees nose down, or would it go into a ballistic, unrestricted and dangerously steep dive?
I read a pilot in an Airbus cannot make the plane pitch down more than 10 or so degrees in ''Normal Law'', would this apply if the plane's computers are trying to pitch the plane down due to faulty AOA sensor data?
