This is a fascinating discussion of plane wing design and avoiding the stall/spin problem.
Many doctors were killed in the v tail doctor killer–the Beachcraft, but that was a different problem apparently, it was such a slick plane that it would exceed airfram tolerances and come apart if the pilot let the nose down.
The stall spin is related to the other major problem–pilots not paying attention to altimeter and flying into a slippy slidey spin to the ground.
Tests on pilots not using instruments showed that the natural tendency of flying by feel is to go into a sliding spin created by dipping one wing or the other.
I don’t fly, but I stayed at Holiday Inn Express sometime in the past.
