A stall that occurs during recovery from a preceding primary stall. This happens when an attempt is made to hasten the completion of stall recovery before the airflow over the aircraft has become fully laminar (i.e., before the aircraft has fully recovered). It takes the form of an accelerated maneuver stall.

Excessive diving to gain airspeed, followed by abruptly pitching up, may impose critical loads on airplane structures and may produce recurrent or secondary stalls by increasing the angle of attack to that of stalling.
