No prob! The B747s as well. Not sure for the -200 but from what I learned, it’s 0.85 for the -400.

Im pretty sure the -200 was that slow. As for the -400 it really all depends. I will put .85 because its more commonly used. Thanks. If you see anything else dont hesitate to tell me. I want to get this list as accurate as possible.

The service ceiling the the A350 is 43000ft

What’s this in IAS? The C130 family rarely flies above 28,000.

Please do correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought this one was M 0.74?

Who remembers this piece of trash, i’m sorta glad they replaced it with the Xclub

i thought the crj-200 was cruise Mach .74 and max Mach .81

and Cruise mach .84 at higher altitude but its kinda slower for the 742

I put the maximum altitude. Not one that they go to often. Deercrusher gave me the speeds for the CRJ family.

Well, the man’s a CRJ pilot, so if he says so lol
