By John's hangar doing 120K
Thumbs/tn_100_0883.jpg
About to turn crosswind, climbing 1400 fpm, accellerating through 130K.
Thumbs/tn_100_0884.jpg
Turning downwind, still climbing 1400 fpm, approaching 150K now.
Thumbs/tn_100_0885.jpg
Throttle back to just above idle. Notice the speed brakes.
Thumbs/tn_100_0886.jpg
On base I believe.
Thumbs/tn_100_0887.jpg
 
Thumbs/tn_100_0890.jpg
On final. Flaps full, speedbrakes out, throttle at idle, doing 120K. Speed bled to 90K across the numbers. Aircraft trimmed using thumbwheels on joystick controls to fly literally hands off even though winds were brisk today.

You can see the instruments.
