(a.k.a. Peregrine, a.k.a. Duck Hawk, Falco peregrinus)
The Peregrine Falcon can reach speeds of up to 389 kph when diving. Falcons are sometimes sent to scare smaller birds away from airports to improve air traffic safety and were used in World War II to intercept carrier pigeons used by enemy forces.
It's about one-and-three-fifths times as fast as a Tornado
The speed of a Tornado is about 198.7540 kilometers per hour.
(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 177.02784 kph and 220.480128 kph. 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 one-and-seven-tenths times as fast as a Skydiver (belly-to-earth)
The speed of a Skydiver (belly-to-earth) is about 190 kilometers per hour.
(Belly-to-Earth orientation, average conditions, terminal velocity)
It's about two times as fast as a Fastball (baseball)
The speed of a Fastball (baseball) is about 150 kilometers per hour.
(a.k.a. rising fastball, a.k.a. cross-seam fastball, a.k.a. heater, a.k.a. hummer, a.k.a. smoker; for four-seam grip) (major league average)
It's about two-and-a-half times as fast as a Curveball (baseball)
The speed of a Curveball (baseball) is about 120 kilometers per hour.
(a.k.a. hook, a.k.a. hammer, a.k.a. yakker) (major league average)
The average speed of major league curveball pitch is 120 kph. In the 1940's, debate over whether there really was a curve in the curveball pitch was settled with the conclusion that the ball does curve; however, an optical illusion caused by the spin of the ball and the batter's perception of motion exaggerates the extent of the curve.
It's about two-and-a-half times as fast as a Hurricane
The speed of a Hurricane is about 119 kilometers per hour.
(formally: Topical cyclone; a.k.a. typhoon)
A hurricane is defined by the US National Hurricane Center as a Northern Hemisphere tropical storm having one-minute average wind-speeds of at least 119 kph. Typhoons Tip (October, 1979) and Keith (October, 1997) and Hurricanes Camille (August, 1969) and Allen (August, 1980) jointly hold the record for highest tropical storm wind speeds at 310 kph (192.63 mph).
It's about three times as fast as a Knuckleball (baseball)
The speed of a Knuckleball (baseball) is about 110 kilometers per hour.
(a.k.a. knuckler, a.k.a. floater, a.k.a. dancer, a.k.a. butterfly ball) (major league average)
The average speed of major league knuckleball pitch is 110 kph. Eddie Cicotte, who was later implicated in the 1919 Black Sox scandal, is credited with developing the pitch ca. 1906.
