Anybody has the climb rate figures for the TU154? That sure felt like a rocket.

Up to 6000 ft/min in cold winter season

I was light out of BOM one day in a MD-11 and had the V/S ind. pegged

The MD11 screams when it's light. The 747 does really well when light, too. A lot of aircraft do.

So long as all three are turning, the MD11 does well at higher gross weights as well, though nothing like when it's empty.
