Never flown that fast nor have I ever seen those two instruments on the left.

The 30 knot window is indeed very narrow. Probably like flying an UL 1.5 knots above stall. At times that was easily done and all the ULs I flew would promptly and easily recover from a stall stable air.

You must be very dependent on stable conditions at that high altitude but surely there must be wind sheers up there.

Now that you've shared this stuff w me I may not fly again.

Fear not!! Flying can still be exciting.

The Airbust folks have a new deal, Wing spar cracks in the cattle car 380.

Lots better than the tail falling off!

And a "Heavy" widebody is barely flying right after takeoff. When I was flying the 767-400, at Max Gross T.O. Weight(450,000lbs) after we got the gear and flaps up and at 250kts(speed limit below 10,000ft, the stall buffet margin on the speed tape was at about 240kts!!!! heavier aircraft(747-400) they have to get a waiver to go faster below 10000ft. Low altitude stalls are quite different from high altitude ones....
