Yup. You learn pretty early on... or should if you want to live... that pulling back on the stick in a stall is a bad tactic. Particularly going full back at FL350 in a 500,000 lb plane.

That’s a good read. I wish I could get in a DC-9 sim. It is amazing that students today are learning in just glass. A buddy that’s starting flight school was asking me about iPads for flight planning. I asked him about using a “whizz wheel” and he had no clue.
