less than 8 seconds easily. As I said above the airspeed indicator came just short of 700 knots before the recovery.

I mean from what I saw the pilot was alerted over radio before the system kicked in.
But wow at that speed what did he have 8 more seconds? 10?
eesshh, that got my heart rate up..
Not sure why that gets me so bad, but I have a bad fear of crashing my plane into the ground while thinking I'm 10,000 feet up.. No idea maybe flight simulators or something, cause I've never flown a plane..
Auto-GCAS continuously compares a prediction of the aircraft’s trajectory against a terrain profile generated from onboard terrain elevation data. If the predicted trajectory touches the terrain profile, which is indicated at the 26 sec. mark on the video at the moment when the two chevrons on the HUD come together, the automatic recovery is executed by the Auto GCAS autopilot. The automatic recovery maneuver consists of an abrupt roll-to-upright and a nominal 5-G pull until terrain clearance is assured.
