Yes the "dynamic air pressure" at 30,000' is less than is at 1000' but to use this as evidence that plane cannot achieve these speeds at low altitude is just plane stupid.

Well when it comes to aircraft and how they work and what they can or cannot do who should have a better idea an experienced flyer of similar size aircraft (weed) or someone who has had a couple of lessons (you).
You know, tests are pretty standardized when it comes to pilots..
I sat the same or very similar "Aerodynamics" test as Weedwhacker probably did..
Granted, experience helps make a better pilot but here we are talking about something VERY basic and ANYONE that has the slightest knowledge of Aerodynamics would know the answer.
Would you care to answer the question now??
