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?
