I agree, I wonder if this is the sort of speed you would reach if you were to put the throttles to the position they should go to as part of the checklist for an air speed indicator failure. We have had a lot of stalled aircraft in recent years, albeit at altitude, but my understanding is that there is a set throttle position & pitch that gives a reasonable guarantee that the plane will maintain altitude whilst diagnosis of the situation is performed assuming good working engines & flight surfaces.
