Airflow separation, you're reaching the critical Mach of the wing. At these high speeds, the upper part of the wing, airflow is probably supersonic, creating a shockwave over the wing (although you're not supersonic), which makes the airflow separate from the wing, making the flight control surfaces very ineffective or completely useless.

This highly depends on the local Mach number too.
