Good on ya MFAFF.

You'd be hard pressed to get a Tom to go any faster than 2.0, if that fast.

The one I was in at the time was a RAG jet (F-14 training squadron - no rails or tanks) on a maint check flight.

We had a D model at Miramar back in '92 that had the chin pod removed (actually rubbed off on a low transition gone bad). Now that was a fast jet.

Sponge, you may not go as fast as the pointy nosed guys, but can they carry as much luggage under their wings?

PS- I love 'em all. Nothing makes you feel more secure on the ground than having our jets and helos flying overhead. The first time I heard an A-10 cannon fire, I though the engine blew. Quite a sound. Thanks to all of you for the work you do.

Great shot, Goran; Brian, too! Gosh, those make me miss mine even more. Although mine had a similar speedo to Goran's, I can say I never saw speeds near that!

Wow, that is an indicated 174 mph!

I'm running stock boost due to our lousy 91 octane gas, with only .8 bar, I'd be lucky to break 160 mph.
