Kaha, the official figures (PMDG manual) for landing over a 50ft obstacle is 2900ft flaps down, no wind, 1000ft elevation at the max landing weight 80,000lbs. Taking off is a different story :) .

Everts Air, the last US operator of these aircraft, probably does not make such stunts.

Norm, do you think this aircraft could be added to the Misty Flying Club fleet, please?
