 If that shot is level, looks about 25-35 degrees (judging by eyesight alone)... Either way... WOW!

I think it is 5°-20° depending on the weight of the airplane, though I may be wrong.

Yep, Takeoff in a 737 means that you cannot put nose pitch higher than 10 Degreees or it going to be tailstrike, after positive climb, angle is increased to about 15 degrees.

At that angle the plane will stall.

 It's pretty impossible to tell for certain without being able to see the ground to measure the angle/ check that the photographer is holding the camera level. I'm sure it's pretty damned steep though!

If you hold the angle long enough, yes.

If you assume that angle to only for a few seconds, no.

There's a video floating around of a military 757-200 doing a mighty impressive zoom climb after a high speed pass.

 Quoting SWAFA27 (Thread starter):What kind of angle

Oh, the famous "tilted camera" angle, indeed. It can be 179 degrees and the plane does not stall.
