The GPS was 197 mph. I used a WAAS enabled GPS receiving WAAS signals around Frankfurt Intl. The GPS was accurate.

Watched the video a few times now and it still amazes me every time I watch it... i'm surprised the gas gauge doesn't move to empty faster than the rpms when you're cruising over 8k!!!
