    Aircraft Learjet 55 Airline n/a
    Notes: This was a charter flight was from Little Rock(LIT) to NE Philadelphia(PNE), at flight level 350. As the speed passed the previous record of 619 kts. Jim and I snapped pictures with our phones as it kept increasing, finally settling with this speed which did not last long at all. Hey Cory sorry for knocking our previous record off the top spot.

    Name Cory Smith Date 28 Dec 2007
    Aircraft Learjet 55 Airline n/a
    Notes: This was coming back home to Spirit of St. Louis (KSUS) after dropping people off in Lajitas, TX (89TE). Lajitas is a private airstrip right on the Mexican border with not much more than a slab of concrete and a windsock. That place is so desolate it looked like we were about to land on Mars. On the way home the jetstream was right on our tail at about 140 KTS. My pal Julie had the previous record at 605 KTS, so, Julie, I finally beat you!!
