FWIW seems to be confusion in the above posts between AOA and Airspeed. AFIK the AOA ( Angle of attack ) indicator measures the angle of the plane to the mass of air flowing past the plane- and has little to do with airspeed ( the indicator FUNCTION is independent of airspeed) . Whil it is true that for stable flight, the PROPER angle of attack is a function of airspeed and weight and CG and . . . the measurement device is like a windvane whose angle is RELATIVE to the body-airframe .

Sure sounds like somehow, the AOA indicator was installed in the wrong set of holes ( clocked ) relative to the correct set. " If it doesn't FIT - FORCE IT ' assmbly method
