flare pilot,

Yes, very different slat arrangement, it doesn't have slats. The 65 had a Raisbeck "supercritical" forward section grafted onto the basic wing. Super in "supercritical" meant one needed to be super careful in icing. Bit like the wing on the CL600 series--fine, if you followed the book in icing conditions. But, if the leading edge section had the least bit of contamination that created sonic flow, it stalled abruptly especially if a rapid rotation brought the wing to stall AOA in ground effect (IGE). Big steaming bowl of Not Good, see G650 accident and all the CL600 accidents. All abrupt, asymmetrical stalls IGE.
