So much for 'pre flight' checks. One would have thought the onboard instruments would have detected an erroneous temperature input.  ::)

The plane did not have the " Software Upgrade  " installed, that would have detected the error   :comando:

" In the report, the regulator said that the jet's flight management system had an older software version that didn't allow the plane to alert the crew to the incorrect temperature reading.

Updated software would fix that, and in a statement to CBC News the airline said the jet in question has received the requisite software upgrade."
