Read it again slowly and count to ten before lunging toward the keyboard.Whhaaaat? The elevator doesn't change the angle of incidence, and the wing only stalls at one angle of attack, the critical angle.
The wing is bolted to the airframe (usually) and pitch (forward and aft) inputs into the stick will change the incidence angle of THE ELEVATOR. That's what it does. It has a hinge.
This is the same at any speed or no speed. The critical angle of attack is the angle of attack which produces maximum lift coefficient. is not a single angular value relative to the airframe and varies with wing configuration. Is that better?
