  I'd like to get some info on how the stall warning systems on various
commercial big airplanes (and the biz-jets, too) work.  What sort of
anticipation is included?  How often do nuisance warnings occur?  How
were nuisance warnings eliminated?  Do the systems key on velocity and
aircraft configuration or do they track alpha?

  Thanks!
