Re: The reason that the Max series need MCAS

A stall can happen in a dive. Interestingly, with such a circumstance expeditious reaction would likely be more urgent than otherwise. So perhaps automatic recovery based on AOA indication is especially sensible for that case.

Detecting the failed indication via cross check of other instrumentation (sensors) is more nuanced and complex than it might appear at first glance.
