ugh wish I could had got a picture of this from the ground. Look cool. So next time try and go to the Southeast corner of Kansas if you can. This would look awesome with contrails behind both planes.

I never got a notice for your comment, well yes it would look good, we were at 12K AGL plus the cloud base below. I am no longer @ Cessna flight test.
Hi Matt, a beautiful shot of a most impressive looking aircraft. What would be a typical full flap Vref at a light landing weight in the C680? I was in a Falcon 50 last month, at a landing weight of just 26,000pounds we had a Vref of 108knots with 48deg landing flap.
