Config file wipe blunder caused deadly Airbus A400M crash – claim

The Routers article says that configuration files for three engines were wiped. In El Reg it says "the torque calibration parameters for the engines were wiped during the installation" where "the engines" refers to the three previously mentioned engines in the paragraph before, not all four engines.

And I'm sure even an embedded system can check the config files at startup and turn on a big red light in the cockpit if something's wrong with them.
