"It was the designer who allowed a single faulty sensor to put the software into a dangerous state."

Surely should have the inputs & processing in triplicate for something like this?

And there should be an easy way to override it, I mean something clear like a big red covered flip switch that can be turned off!

Single sensors are fine for toys, but not for a plane carrying passengers!
