I guess you're right. The lead engineer who designed the Shaker System for Boeing is too stupid to know what speed 767s start to break apart at.
Shaker onset speed is just above stall speed...sorry...that is the way it is. I been flying in the military for over 25 years I kind of know these
things. This guy has other reasons to say what he says.
Here somethings...look it up
767-200 - Max cruising speed 914km/h (568mph), economical cruising speed 854km/h (531mph).
In the states jets need to slow down below 250 knots (or 280 MPHish) below 10,000 feet. It is a FFA rule, and so if they must SLOW down then I guess
they are going faster at some point. 250 knots is NORMAL speeds below 10,000, and the reason is so controllers can better time departures and
Like i said though I do not know that guy's reasons to say what he says.
