Boeing AOA indicator problem

Recommended Posts

I have a curious problems about Boeing AOA indicator.

When I increase the thrust,  AOA indicator red pointer drop.
Why does power increase reduce the limit of AOA?

It seems action in opposite way what I learn of aerodynamic.
I thought it cause by Wave drag and high speed stall, but it is not.

I try it at low attitude with low speed, and it still happened.

Thank you guys.

You cannot isolate thrust, performance includes thrust and attitude.  Thrust changes go hand in hand with attitude changes, and all this goes into the AOA.  I'm not sure what wave drag is, but certainly do not see the connection with high speed stall (jet tuck).
