Which techniques are associated with a nose-high upset recovery of a large airplane?


An airplane with an 'upset attitude' is an aircraft that's in a bad position, with either too much or too little pitch. Recovering from this position can be difficult and dangerous. When the nose is too high, airspeed will start to decrease, so there is little time to fix the problem. Each plane reacts a little differently, but it is advised to take the plane manually, and use the right thrust to get back in the right position
