Wasn't that one of the ealier Velocitys with the aft fuel bulkhead in the
original position before Danny moved it forward to help deter the deep
stall condition? I believe the original position is where the 1600 mile
range came from. I think that range is in reality reduced by some measure
that correlates to the change in bulkhead position. Comments?
