  • Q811246 - Coffin Corner altitude/speed dilemma

    Whenever I run across this question, it gets me into dilemma if, by choosing "Coffin Corner" I might be selecting the wrong answer, as the speed is asked for while coffin corner is an altitude. What is your opinion on this? - is it poorly worded and can it be considered an unfair trap that might lead you away from the correct answer or it's worded fine? Should it be appealed?

    The critical speed where the speed is too low and too high at the same time is called:
    A. Coffin Corner
    B. MCrit
    C. Supersonic
    D. High Speed Buffet
