Re: need an off switch

"There should be a single switch that unconditionally inhibits all automation, returning full manual control to a pilot. Not a panacea, but it might have prevented this accident."

And caused, or failed to prevent, other accidents.

There is no universal solution, and human pilots have racked up a fairly poor track record, over the years.
