Guess Hawker Beechcraft is upping the ante in the bizjet speed records

Though more likely someone getting a little too happy with the power lever(s) on a much pointier and probably gray airplane. (www.wafb.com) More...

Obviously an erroneous report about the Beech. They get more speed per gallon than competitors but c'mon!

Hey, any airplane can break the sound barrier...once.

Yeah, and then the sound barrier would break it.

I vote for the T-38 as much as they fly those along the gulf coast.

I don't think that a beechjet would come anywhere close to the sound barrier before disentergrating

I'm trying to find the flight, but the site limits type queries to what's currently in the air. I don't have an API key to perform API queries.

I assumed that it was a T-38 or an F-18 and didn't bother to look. There are several Air Force and Navy bases around here.

That's probably true, but the statement from the Baton Rouge airport said something about a BeechJet. I'm having a hard time believing that they don't know something with a detail like that.

Being based at BTR I am sure they don't always get details like that right.

The speed of sound is 768 mph. I doubt a beechjet could go that fast.

Beechjet? Sound barrier? Lol
