Had my trusty old T-28 down at the dry lakebed today and got her clocked at 68 MPH on RADAR....and that's on an all stock setup! Not bad for a "trainer"
My buddy flys an Air Force version and somehow got his to 72 MPH on the RADAR gun...
! I'm thinkin' (no joke) he was slightly in a dive and levelled out right before hitting the gun. I started my run fairly far out and gunned her about 20-30 feet off the deck. Looked great zipping by at that altitude and then doing a nice climbing bank off to the left after she passed the RADAR.
And yes, I was holding lots
of down elevator to keep her from climbing to the moon
