Is this speed correct?


#1

According to the flight track, just before landing the ground speed goes all the way down to 60. I was just wondering if this is correct. Im not sure how strong the winds were when it landed in LAS but I seriously doubt it could be that strong.

Note the altitude is 2100 while the airport elevation is 2181… I’d assume the last two points are on the runway.

Don’t forget that the speed when you are 81 feet underground the FAA regs say you must being doing less than 100 knots.
