I do not understand. If the static pressure trapped inside the system
were enough to show a V1 speed on the pilot's gauges, shouldn't pilots
have noticed that the gauges were reading V1 while the plane was iddle?
If looking at the needle move until it reaches V1 is partof the
responsabilities of one of the 2 pilots, shouldn't that pilot not have
noticed that the needle was not moving?
