    3100 mph at 50k feet? Gotta be something wrong with their numbers. I'd expect that around Edwards AFB not Long Island Sound.

    (The sound is "zoooooooooooom" btw)

    When was this? Sure I would have heard those sonic booms rattling windows on Long Island.

    Reminds me of the 172 at FL380 I saw on FlightAware. To answer your question, it sounds like Lawn Guyland.

    In a 182, despite heading southish at 9500 MSL, Garmin Pilot showed me making a big right 360 while making covering 478 knots over the surface. Upon completing the 360, the track and speed normalized.

    One of the harder accents to take seriously in an educated discussion

    Yup...they can barely get one syllable into “****”, not even close to the six syllables that a good southerner can get.
