The Aircraft Plaque
This is the descriptive plaque in front of the aircraft.  Would anyone out there like to try either 10,000 pounds of cargo or 216 mph?  It seems to me that at 2000 RPM and 20 inches, it cruised along very serenely at 105 knots.  I once set "go home power" at a 1000 BHP cruise and managed to get about 120 knots out of it.  Since 216 mph is about 188 knots, I'm not sure where they got that number.
