I very seldom fly the ME 262 but did so last night and noticed that the airspeed dial in the cockpit has 2 needles. The darker one seems to indicate the actual aircraft speed. What does the other lighter coloured one show as I noticed that during flight it seems to be stuck around the 325 kmh mark.

It kind of looks like one IAS-needle and one TAS-needle, but it seems very odd that one of them should just stop.

White one is your indicated speed - yellow one I believe *might* be the stall speed. I always use the white one, so I don't really know.
