Benchmark test

As I hadn’t flown the 747-8 for a while, I wondered if it was flyable at 180kts, even at MTOW. Although significant flaps and AoA, it was well controllable, including turns.

(this was for me to gain recent first hand experience to understand a claim in another post)

If I fly a plane I have not in a while I like to do test flights in solo, practice approaches, how slow can I fly or how fast can I fly, it helps a lot so you are more familiar with the aircraft when you fly online
