The guy who questioned the controller is an ex military pilot and to be fair to him would probably be used to controllers looking out for battle damage etc. He is also fairly easily identifiable and...

You tend to leave the power in during descent. But obviously you need to slow down at some point so you can configure. This looks like the power was left in too long and the aircraft left the pilot...

The Cirrus I fly for fun (Airbus captain) can do 210 knots at FL250 and would not usually be considered a training aircraft. In my experience it is a stupendous personal transportation device. But it...
