umm, i understand that aircraft are seldom at rest when in flight ...

Try factoring in the momentum (.5*mv^2) of a 400-to-800 thousand pound aircraft (depending on load and fuel status) traveling at maybe 490 knots.

It will slough off some of that M in vectoring down to earth but it still 'aint going to be starting the trip from rest.
