Flight Details: The flight started out okay. However, while in decent, and approach for runway 1L, I quickly learned that I had a failed airspeed indicator after receiving a stall warning at 230 knots and in almost level flight. While my time was almost fully consumed by this failure I glanced at the altimiter and noticed Ive been at 7000 feet for a while. Ive heard of a double instrument failure, but never have witnessed one. At this point I was wondering which gauges which were still in operation, or if I should trust any of them. KLAS traffic was busy at VATSIM, and roger wilco keept kicking me out, which forced me to use text. They did a great job of directing me to runway 1L, however with no altimiter and airspeed indicator and considering the rapidly changing terrian it was far to difficult to navigate a non-ILS approach (not to mention it was pitch black outside). I finally had to give up using VORs because I didnt know if those still worked or not, I had to finally cheat and use the squawkbox radar and look at the VORs to get me back to BLD, which I know would line me up for the ILS. I knew once I was on the glideslope I would be safe from hitting any terrain, and by seeing my rate of decent/climb/pitch and the position of my throttle I could guesstimate my airspeed. Once I was on localizer and glideslope it was pretty easy to land. But watching the altimiter and airspeed gauge not moving was frightning.
A similar situation like this has occured before but over the ocean in pitch black. Where a 757 had been freshly painted but the masking tape hadnt been removed from the static points, thus causing incorrect altimiter and airspeed readings. More information about this incident can be located at: http://www.airdisaster.com/cgi_bin/view_details.cgi?date=10021996=N52AW&airline=Aeroperu If anyone is interested

The folks at vatsim did an amazing job at sorting out the confusion and switching the active runway at the last second, I give them props! Thanks guys!
