Ok this is pretty wimpy but its the first time I hit 200 KTS going North and South. West to East is easier. You'll have to take my word for straight and level.

Sure made my trip from Cleveland to Parris Island quicker. ( I normally cruise 160-175 KTS if I'm in a hurry)

I had a 235 K Ground Speed over Lake Michigan once and wish I had a photo of that. I do occasional get a good tailwind.
