    Hey Tordillo,

    220 knots seems very slow, at which altitude are you refueling? what's your payload?

    Actually, 220 IAS, is the refueling speed for A-10’s according the KC-135/10 docs.

    I ment that it seems too slow for not having enough power to accelerate past 220, maybe i didnt understand his post correctly!

    Looks like you are carrying the load of a whole flight with you.
    That will surely slow you down a bit.

    Way too much. With 100% fuel and that load you're above max rated takeoff weight.
