    Quoted:
    Dierk Reuter and Phil Bozek used their Daher TBM 930 to beat a 34-year-old speed record on March 9, averaging 364 knots between Westchester County Airport (HPN) near New York City and Le Bourget Airport in France. Their 8-hour, 37-minute flight beat a record set by Chuck Yeager in 1985 in the C1e class for turboprop aircraft with a takeoff weight under 13,200 pounds. He made the trip at an average of 325 knots.

    And Daher just put out a video for the new TBM 940. Now if only I could get those winning Powerball numbers.

    The manliest part about this is that they beat a record set by Chuck Yeager
