There was another similar test done sometime back with B-727 where a lot of data was collected. It should be on YouTube. I will try to find it.

Thank you Kikapu.

B727 will always have a special place in my heart. That's the ATPL plane in Australia with B767, to this day.

It is a special aircraft, but boy, it is so noisy in the cockpit once the speed reached over 250 knots.

'Worse than 9/11': Coronavirus threatens global airline industry

Brian Pearce, economist of IATA, said their early March estimate of $113 billion in losses to the global industry now looks very low.

"Seventy-five percent of the airlines we have looked at have less than three months of cash to pay their fixed costs," Pearce said.
