Further experiments to see if a Jaguar could achieve at least one dry take-off.

A running start into wind, hold back, catapault, curvature of the earth, increased AOA; if it doesn't lift off with full stores and fuel this time, what else can we try?

Remove the pilot's watch?

We did that last time.

Oh...

It's in the link, I swopped it back as I read WD's posts and he had replied to the one I put up first I think which is the one showing, so I swopped it back and you replied in the meantime Doh!

Reheat?

That's already included in the calcs.

The crew hated it when the Jag was taking off. It's not easy to get a Carrier up to 88mph.

It's no use, we can't rely on the curvature of the earth. Get that tank off and strap on a Saturn 5.
