Well that is what the official version of the story is, based on the flight data recorder. Same with AF 447. According to what I've read, the same thing happened.

The plane went in to a stall and the pilot in command was pulling up on the stick for 3 minutes.

You would like to think that the people flying the planes know what they are doing, but it certainly doesn't seem to be the case.

That said, it's pretty convenient for a company to blame the pilots.
