They do unless the 172 has JATO pods attached.

...I'd kinda like to see that!

Yeah I know. I Find it odd that a plane can fly the approach faster than it can cruise.

Only when I was flying it.

The screen on the tailcone (100-300 mods) is to protect from Canada Geese birdstrikes from behind.

Always fun to throw a change-up at the guy riding your ass on arrival if you are really light. 230-240 knots in a slight descent until 3 or 4 miles out, then level off at 1000 or so, flight idle, dirty up, slow to 82 knots Vref flaps 35. Can't do that in an RJ.

The Dash 8 makes crummy controllers look like plane pushing gods:

"Piedmont, minimum forward speed..."

(30 seconds later)

"Piedmont max forward speed, direct to the numbers!"
