Several of us (non pilots) have been told that a large passenger jet should
not descend below about 10,000 feet at more than about 250 knots air speed
in controlled flight. Should that speed be inadvertently exceeded, what
sort of problems would arise? We felt that they might be related mainly to
temperature increase in the denser air, but wondered if anyone had detailed
information.
Thanks,
Doug
