The BOAC/BA flying manual states 'Average jettison rate is 1200 kgs/minute'. Hope this helps.
Buttons . . . check. Dials . . . check. Switches . . . check. Little

Thanks Jelle. I did look in my copy and couldn't find that. What section is it in?
Thanks.
PS I know that the max uplift rate is 1,600kpm so I would have thought it to be around that number, however!
PPs Found it buried near then end in section 7

I was going to say: near the end. Page 7-28-something in the emergency procedures.
