Well, we can't be 100% sure of the speed, but doing a little math we figured it came down from around 2,000 feet and we calculated about a 12-15 second drop. At 15 seconds that's 133 fps. If my calculations are correct, 60mph is 88fps. So 133fps should be 90mph. A 12 second drop would be 166fps, which should be 113mph. Now none of that is taking into account the fact that the speed increased as it dropped. Meaning the final speed was probably a little higher. All I know is that it is screaming as the ground rushes up.
