pfst... forget the sukhois, migs, and anything else because i've got this!
1964 Cessna 150D N4145U aka "Scooby Doo"
gross weight: 1600 lbs
empty weight: 970 lbs
top speed at sea level: 125 mph
cruise speed: 122 mph (closer to about 100 mph)
"do not exceed" speed: 165 mph
range at cruise: 490 miles; 4.0 hours
range at optimum: 565 miles; 5.7 hours
rate of climb at sea level: 670 fpm (though i've gotten and kept nearly 1500 before)
sevice ceiling: 12,650 ft (though in winter i've gone up 14,000 due to the denser air)
take off (normal): 735 ft (at gross closer to 850)
take off (short feild): at gross about 650 ft
take off (soft field): at gross about 900 ft
landing: 445 ft (i've stopped in under 100 though, without heavy breaking)
power: continental O-200A; 100 HP at 2750 RPM
propeller: fixed pitch 69 in. diameter
other: it was upgraded for to have larger tires (the tires of a Cessna 206) so it can land on soft grass fields. that's why the nose wheel fork looks
to be on backwards for anyone who notices that. first year with the rear window. second to last year with the straight tail.
yeah, let's see a mig, suikoi, f/a-18 take me on... of course, i fear f-16s. but that's only because i've been on their attack radars before. but
that's a whole other story!
