Dangers Associated with Loose Objects on a Flight Deck

15 Dec 2015
On 9 February 2014, a pilot suddenly lost control of an aircraft during the cruise when his camera became jammed between the seat arm rest and the side stick - an un-commanded descent of 4400 feet over 27 seconds at up to 15000 fpm occurred and recovery to controlled flight was automatically initiated by the aircraft flight envelope protection system.
