A great Advert RV-10 story (On App. Control Freq.)
I was on an IFR flight plan to Hilton Head Island last week. I usually flight plan for 174 Knots TAS (and usually get more:-)). I was handed off to Beaufort Approach Control to get to the RNAV approach at HH.
I was descending at about 180 KTAS and had a 17 KT tailwind component, and Beaufort Approach Control, over the frequency called another aircraft going to HH, and said "November XYZ I need to turn you inbound now, there is an RV-10 behind you at 200 Knots over the ground."
Talk about an in flight RV grin :-)........
