In the original version of this record about 42% of the speeds
were below the instrument's threshold and were set to zero.
In fact, the final 140 days of the speed record had been zeroed.
We do not know whether this was caused by an instrument failure
or whether the current speed really was below the instrument's
stall speed for the entire 140 days. Either is possible, but we
are inclined to think it was an instrument failure and have
removed the final 140 days of speed.

Move up one level.
