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!!!!...in 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....
