85? it goes that low? wow...I had heard 109...even that is low...I believe the NTSB was referencing that the approach speed for a 777 is 137kts.
The Captain requested more speed 7 seconds before impact, 4 seconds before impact the stick shaker went off, and 1.5 seconds before impact they requested a go around...they knew they had blown the approach for a bit.
Looking at that chart though these guys had to know they started their approach to high (and I'm guessing to fast) and tried to make a steeper approach to get to the right altitude, then when you see it level off I would say they needed a power increase to account for the different attitude of the plane.
But what do I know, I've only played with planes on flight simulator
