Picked up a bit of a tailwind coming in from YLRE in the Bonanza last week!

Would have showed 1,905 knots, but X-15 3,925 knots

Doc, you off track for a reason?

BA - I deliberately off-set my track a bit to reduce the chance of running into someone else on the airway. One of the hazards of GPS navigation is that it is so accurate - I figure +/- 1 m.

With that sort of GS you don't get much time to take avoiding action.

Ok Dr two questions for you:
What is the story with the groundspeed? and
Shouldn't you be applying a right track offset like everyone else instead of a left one?
The Comet.

1) What is the story with the groundspeed?

Sub-jetstream = An unusual meteorological event resulting in extreme lower level winds!

2) Shouldn't you be applying a right track offset like everyone else instead of a left one?

If everyone offsets to the right - I like to go left to be different.

Dr

PS: An alternative explaination might be that the mad Dr, being a bit of a smartar*e, used a GPS simulator program to produce the Jepp FliteDeck output illustrated. Said program may have required the Dr to input the waypoints in whole degrees to five decimals, and the Dr was too lasy (or incapable!) to do so, resulting in a slightly offset track.

It does however illustrate that you should not believe everything you see in PPRuNe!

Subjetstream

Hi FTDK, this may be a dumb question, but here it goes anyway:

What happens when you enter or leave this subjetstream, isn't the change in windspeeds dangerous for the aircraft structure, or is the transition gradual?

Plank... if you read the last post that the Dr. wrote you'll see he just used a GPS sim. i.e. Pulling your leg.

An approximate 700 kt (or read ~1300kmph) tail wind should have given that away that he was having you on...


Dr - fishing out at Hinchenbrook? (Did you get some floats fitted to your FDK? )

Just when I got used to having to think in feet for vertical distance, miles for horizontal distance (unless its a runway, when you use metres), pounds for weight in the aeroplane and kilograms for weight outside the aeroplane, litres off the bowser to gallons in the tanks...

Now you introduce kilo- miles per hour?

kmph = kilometers per hour...

somebody is unnecessarily confusing us.

km/h or kph boys, not kmph

Would you prefer 710,848 fathoms an hour?

Ok, my turn to post some pics.

Enroute to the 2nd pic.

Wondai would be correct. And yes, first solo nav back in May last year.

Nah Jaba, I was tested and found wanting (yet again)!

Dr

PS: Got one only of the targeted species, 57 cm - just under size!
Psssst! You forgot to mention that the Bazza above was 102 cm / 13.6 kg!

Also a "for sale" sign on it if I recall correctly.
