Default DC-8 Before Take Off and Taxi....

"drop-rise, drop -rise, drop -rise' drop-rise", (yoke going backward-forward), "drop-rise, drop-rise, drop-rise, drop-rise"
That is only a teeny bit from the second page <bg>...

Works pretty well.
Christ, you'de think NWA was launching a space shuttle with our after start, taxi, all engines taxi and before takeoff checklist. From gate push to take off covers more than one full complete side of the checklist.

Any more questions as to why we taxi so slow?
