We can't all be Rockets, but with a good tailwind, we can try!

I'm guessing CRJ700, based on the weights in the placard.

Well these are from the past when I had a turbo Sube. It had problems and I have been NA for the last 200 hrs or so. The ground speed is not that great, in fact I think I had some head wind, but the true air speed, RPMs, and MAP are a bit unusual... 48 square on 150 cubic inches and broke the speed limit straight and level at 8K.

I have learned much since making this mistake. I understand that VNE is based on true airspeed and 200 knots is my limit. Just thought I would post the pics to show what happened one day when my hair was on fire.

How about this one Widget!

Since we're not doing RV's, I call and raise you 300 kts

13 knot tailwind got me over 1000.

Next?, TBD
