737 NG high speed descent ATSB report


Nothing like a high speed descent to keep you on your toes or passengers tight against their seat belts. More haste less speed?

Does the data support that? From the report (ATSB – AO-2015-041), page 7
Related occurrences
Overspeed occurrences on descent
Between 2012 and 2015, 51 occurrence reports were submitted to the ATSB that involved an overspeed in a B737 aircraft on descent. Of these, two occurred during high-speed descents.
It looks like most of the occurrences are unrelated to the descent speed.

I would guess that most over speeds in the 737 happen when still on Mach.
