Mark, yes I have already read that and many other similar works.

I still can not accept the concept that thrust reduces as "Vflight" increases.
What happens if "Vflight" = "Vexhaust"? Zero thrust?

Can it truly be that aerodynamic drag, increasing as the square of the velocity, is being reacted by thrust decreasing with velocity?
