The airspeed bleeds off and you feel a buffet, or the stall warning bleats and flashes desperately at you. Of course, you recover like a pro with a super co-ordinated release of back pressure and smooth input of power. But have you ever considered a stall with the power on?
Do you know why the centre of pressure on an aircraft wing initially moves forward as the angle of attack increases, yet as it reaches the stall it moves backwards?
The stall is entirely dependent on the angle of attack, and can occur at ANY speed. Now for the interesting part – What is a deep, accelerated and shock stall?
