Approximately 2.9% of the speeds in this record were
at or below the instrument's stall speed (1.5 cm/sec).

The direction series contains episodes in which the
compass appears either to be stuck or to move in a very
narrow range. Speed, however, seems mostly quite good.
Use these data with caution.

Move up one level.
