It's about three times as fast as a Lamborghini Gallardo
In other words, 890.80 feet per second is 3.1 times the speed of a Lamborghini Gallardo, and the speed of a Lamborghini Gallardo is 0.32 times that amount.
(for Gallardo LP 550-2, a.k.a. Valentino Balboni, 2009 model)
The Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 model Gallardo has a top speed of 290 feet per second. The Gallardo can reach speeds of 91 feet per second in just 3.9 seconds.
It's about three times as fast as The TGV (train)
In other words, 890.80 feet per second is 3.1 times the speed of The TGV (train), and the speed of The TGV (train) is 0.32 times that amount.
(Train à Grande Vitesse) (for SNCF TGV Réseau, a.k.a. "Network" model, a.k.a. TGV-R) (maximum speed)
The TGV Réseau sets have a top speed of 290 feet per second. The train is capable of travelling the 425 km (264 mi) distance from Paris to Lyon in East-Central France in about two hours.
It's about three-tenths as fast as a Bullet (Rifle)
In other words, 890.80 feet per second is 0.297 times the speed of a Bullet (Rifle), and the speed of a Bullet (Rifle) is 3.37 times that amount.
(5.56 x 45 mm, a.k.a. 5.56 NATO)
A 5.56 x 45 mm cartridge is fired at a velocity of 3,000 feet per second. As the NATO rifle cartridge, it is used by the military forces of more than thirty-one countries, including use in the M16 series, M4 Carbine, HK-416, and M249 Squad automatic weapons used by the United States armed forces.
It's about three-and-a-half times as fast as a Helicopter
In other words, 890.80 feet per second is 3.44 times the speed of a Helicopter, and the speed of a Helicopter is 0.291 times that amount.
(for AH-64A Apache, a.k.a. Hughes Model 77) (maximum cruise speed)
The AH-64 helicopter, one of the primary helicopters used by the United States Army, flies at a top cruise speed of 259 feet per second. The AH-64 is the primary military helicopter of several nations including the United States, the United Kingdom, Israel, Japan, and the Netherlands.
It's about four times as fast as a Skydiver (headfirst)
In other words, 890.80 feet per second is 3.8 times the speed of a Skydiver (headfirst), and the speed of a Skydiver (headfirst) is 0.26 times that amount.
(Head-to-Earth orientation or standing, average conditions, terminal velocity)
A head-to-Earth or standing-oriented skydiver's terminal velocity assuming average conditions is about 240 feet per second. In a typical jump from 3,900 m (13,000 ft), a diver in this orientation will be in freefall for 46 seconds.
It's about five times as fast as a Tornado
In other words, 890.80 feet per second is 4.917924 times the speed of a Tornado, and the speed of a Tornado is 0.2033378 times that amount.
(EF2) (wind speed range average)
According to the Enhanced Fujita scale implemented by the US National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, a "significant" tornado has an Enhanced Funjita scale classification of EF2 and is characterized by wind gust speeds between 161.33330 feet per second and 200.93330 feet per second. The largest recorded tornado — an F4 event occurring in Nebraska in May, 2004 — was almost 4.02 km (2.5 mi) across.
It's about five times as fast as a Skydiver (belly-to-earth)
In other words, 890.80 feet per second is 5.1 times the speed of a Skydiver (belly-to-earth), and the speed of a Skydiver (belly-to-earth) is 0.2 times that amount.
(Belly-to-Earth orientation, average conditions, terminal velocity)
A belly-to-Earth oriented skydiver's terminal velocity is about 170 feet per second. In a typical jump from 3,900 m (13,000 ft), a diver in this orientation will be in freefall for 60 seconds.
