Wouldn't a pilot who knew the attitude and power settings of his aircraft be suspicious of an airspeed indication that was significantly wrong (I am NOT a pilot, so this is a real rather than a rhetorical question)? What about the stick shaker -- wouldn't this have given a stall warning (assuming it is an independent system)?
