Thanks for the clarification.
Of course, when you’ve got a Vne of 120 knots, things are “flimsy”. However, in all cases, with winds of 30–40, I don’t think it’s possible to exceed Vne, but getting close to it, yes.
Is it theoretically possible to have two horizontal levels of different wind speeds/wind shear at low altitudes, say 1500ft? If you’ve got two notches of flap out (Vfe is then 53 knots), is it possible to enter another level with winds exceeding Vfe and get them torn out, or will drag take care of things and save the day?
