More & more it is headed toward pilot error shutting down the wrong engine. When you have the FDR telling you the alarm was on the right engine and the left was manually shut down, restarted OK but not soon enough, what else is it gonna be. I guess you could say ERROR but it was actually a bad mistake. They apparently realized that mistake by the re-start; it just wasn't soon enough. Altitude works wonders.
As they say in the military " your other right!"
What baffles me is that this happened with a check-airmen on the jump seat.
It don't matter if you got 6 hrs in type or 6000, humans will screw up from time to time and they did here, big time
You're right, once the human is in the picture, a brain fart is possible. Despite all the training and 30,000 hours, it is no guarantee against that fart.
Kinda reminds me of that DC9 out of Milwaukie Wi about 15 years ago. CRM? What was the hurry to shut the engine down?
