What is your average PPH X4 burn rate when doing 300 and full of GI's?
Well, I've been retired for 5 years now, so its been a while. But here goes.
Burn per engine: 1100 pounds JP-5 per hour per engine
Burn per hour 4 engines: 4400 pounds per hour
Density of JP-5: 6.5 pounds per gallon
Gallons of JP-5 per hour: 677 gallons per hour
No wind gound speed 300 miles per hour
so, about 0.45 miles per gallon of Jet Fuel
What a rush though ...
