This scene from the movie Flight has me mesmerized for days now: 'Flight' crash brings air terror back to the screen
What's especially chilling is the same model Alaska Air MD-80 experienced the same issue with stabilizer screw wear causing it to snap sending it into uncontrolled dive over Pacific. The pilots last words were something to the effect of "Good news is we're flying. Bad news is we're upside down."
It seems what the movie is emulating is that this is what the Alaska pilots may have actually been trying to arrest the dive, to some success, but with the Pacific to land on instead of the billowing wheat field. They were right outside LAX when they crashed trying for an emergency landing, literally in the movie industry's Malibu front yard.
The commentary at the time is that these 30 year old jets were the only ones with no redundancy built in, so I wonder if pilots had in the back of their mind inversion as a last resort. It's ridiculous American still hasn't replaced all of these, with 300+ more to go.
