Side note that kind of has nothing to do with this, but has anyone ever stood on the ramp or atleast near a CRJ and hear those engines scream (I hope this is a better example than wang crossfingers )when they are spooled up for taxi or on take-off? It's the best sounding engine during that time IMO...

Is this true, or just sheer power of the PW2040's? I doubt they are actually breaking the sound barrier.

To find out the local mach number at the pressure and tempurature which exists at the tips at full speed would need someone with a much better understanding of aero than me. But, 1,150 is right.
