"Abnormal computer behaviour can often be stopped by interrupting the power supply of the affected computer."
I didn't expect a more eloquently phrased "have you tried turning it off and on again" in this manual.
I think it was an Embraer E-170.
LRBL is “least risk bomb location” and is apparently required by the FAA: https://www.faa.gov/documentLibrary/media/Advisory_Circular/...
Since you want the bomb behind the engines to avoid ingesting debris, you would likely have to put the bomb in this previously "more survivable" area.
Aside from actually having plenty of redundancy to avoid this scenario (this can only happen if two out of three sensors fail), this is basically the Airbus equivalent of MCAS. I wonder how well documented (and trained) this scenario is (and suspect that pilots are a lot more aware of it).
I believe the Airbus flight envelope protection uses the same surfaces normally controlled by the sidesticks, ignoring the pilot inputs (which is possible because they're fly-by-wire), while Boeing's MCAS uses the pitch trim (since it cannot ignore the pilot inputs due to them being mechanically linked with cables).

Here's a case of unreliable airspeed in which the three ADRs were turned off by the pilots: https://www.atsb.gov.au/publications/investigation_reports/2... ("In accordance with published procedures, the flight crew turned off the three air data reference systems (ADRs)"), so it does seem to be documented/trained.
Television special about that flight:
One Airbus plane was lost because of that. I believe it was icing caused by maintenance staff cleaning the exterior and getting water on the various static ports, which then iced over.
I think 5 people died.

Anyone happen to know if I'm correct?
"Damage to the windshield may necessitate an autoland or landing with a sliding window open."
> Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem. All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them going again. I trust you are not in too much distress.
> Damage to the windshield may necessitate an autoland or landing with a sliding window open.
Landing while sticking your head out the window is sure going to be interesting...
"You’re going to need a longish runway. Worst case is if you only have blue, since you have, at best, accumulator braking and you’re coming in fast due to lack of flaps. Yellow is better since you have alternate braking, and its mainly about the lack of slats. If you have green, its not really all that bad."
In addition, what source is this from?
