I flew a Delta MD-90 yesterday and was impressed by its vigorous
ascent.  A while ago someone made a table of thrust/weight ratios
for various airliners showing the 757 ended on top (apart from the
Concorde that is, which is in a special category!).

I was wondering if that person (Andrew Chuang? Karl Swartz?) could
add the MD-90 to the table to see where it stacks up.  In some ways
it reminded me of the 757, being long and thin with big high-bypass
engines.
