Evan, a ball park formula is: Takeoff with Flaps 15 degrees, use the last two didgits of the GW, divide by two, add 2, then add 14. i.e. 160,000 is 60 divided by 2= 30 add 100 = 130 plus 2=132= V1,VR 132 plus 14= 146= V2 Landing Bug Speed= last two didgits of GW divide by2, plus 8=bug speed. i.e. 120,000 is 20 divided by 2= 110+8=128 again these are ball park figures which will get you within a knot or two of the actual speed. cheers, Ernie
