Interesting. I seem to remember a newspaper story sometime around the late
70's early 80's, about either a 707 or DC-8 that rolled out at altitude,
I believe it was attributed to windshear, and didn't recover untill it was
down to about 2-3000 ft. Same procedure, it had to drop flaps and gear to
get the speed under controll. The plane went supersonic. I'm fairly certain it
was a DC-8 because I distinctly remember the article stating that they had
to reverse thrust on the 2 inboard engines(!!!!) to get their speed down.
Anybody remember this one?
