-------------------------------------------------

Family Name = Lucht
Given Name = Dennis
My Aircraft =

A piston-powered aircraft based on "Douglas DC-6B." Passengers 90, cruise Mach number 0.41, low trapezoidal wing, conventional tail (vertical stabilizer with dorsal fin), landing gear retracted. 4 propeller engines (3 blades, propeller diameter 4.11 m, 2400 PS 1765 kW).

Note: Cruise speed for "Douglas DC-6B" was given with 475 km/h 131.94 m/s, cruising altitude with 4,400 m. Therefore the cruise Mach number was calculated as shown below:

Temperature: T(H) = T(4,400 m) = 288.15 K – 4,400 m · 0.0065 K/m = 259.55 K

Speed of sound: a(T) = (T · R ·  κ)½ = a(259.55 K) = (259.55 K · 287.058 J (kg K)-1 · 1.4)½ = 322.97 m/s

→  Ma = v / a = 131.94 / 322.97 = 0.4085 ≈ 0.41
