  So, the pilot's options were limited not only by a bird strike but 
also by a computer system with predetermined command override 
priorities. That doesn't sound good to me.
While some may be comfortable with computers making major control 
decisions, as a pilot with lives on the line I'd prefer to reserve those 
options for my judgement.
Guess I'm old fashioned that way.
