Jet rolled 36 degrees left as it rotated. This is not the final report but has a lot of info.

Wow. Had not know of this incident. Will try and keep up for the final report.

“It was taking a lot of left rudder…to keep it centreline.”
With a 38.5m wingspan on a 61m wide runway, I would have to say centerline was not maintained at all if the 5000’ remaining marker was hit.

I see they focused on rudder trim and the jet appears in the FDR to have had 8 or 10 degrees left rudder trim for takeoff. On the A330 rudder trim is checked by the takeoff config warning. Is that not the case on the A320?

It's monitored to be in a specific range. I don't recall the range (f I ever knew) but 8* seems like a lot. It's normally set to zero.

It means one side stick is being pushed or pulled one way and the other one another way.

Doesn’t necessarily mean opposing inputs, just means that both pilots are moving their respective side sticks at the same time.

The FDR plots showed the aileron inputs from both sticks, but not sure I’m reading it correctly.
