Can someone explain the difference between the two?
Also, what is the effect of the "T-tail" design, relating to the super stall condition?

Thanks in advance!

My glass is neither 1/2 empty nor 1/2 full, rather, the glass itself is twice as big as it should be.

The most practical explanation...........recovery v. crash.

"Ordinary" stall:
- Airflow over the wing is disrupted such that it loses lift. Contrary to common belief, this can happen at any speed (high G turn can make a plane stall) but is more common at low speed.

"Deep" or "Super" stall:
- When a plane in a stall condition has a T-tail the stabilizer can fall into the jetwash of the wing. Thus there is no airflow over the stabilizer, and no stabilizer authority. This makes recovery tricky at best.

Compressor stall:
- When airflow through the engine compressor is disrupted. In many ways the same as a wing stall but for engine compressor blades.
