Recently I posted a question on editing the spoilers on my B-52H for FSX.
Thanks to all for the advice and I have file those for future use. But after
re-testing I've found that the a/c is braking well enough. I think I had
been landing with far too much fuel aboard! I think my version is an update
of one by Mike Stone.
Also, I've been hitting the runway at too high a speed. I guess I have been
used to landing 737's at 150 kts. Now I'm surprised at how much lower the
B-52 can approach and land. I think I've found suggestions for 110-130 kts,
or even less. To my mind that's amazing for such a large, heavy bomber, but
what do I know?!
My question is now, does anyone have a link to B-52 flight manual or some
kind of guide to the basics of flying this a/c?
I've come across some listings for initial climb speed of 5000-6000 ft/min.
That's impressive, but I'm wondering at what speed and for how long can the
B-52H sustain this climb speed? 250-300KIAS or maybe Mach 0.60 and to what
