Yep.. sorta like when Boeing would tell us (back-in-the-day) that if you can close the swing nose (747F) and not collapse the floor it will take off.

The most weight I have seen on a 695B actually stated was on a ferry permit from west coast to OZ. 695B is a muscle machine. Imagine what it could do with -14's

Interesting chart

We are finally done with maintenance and the avionics upgrade and our new useful load is 3224. Over a 200 pound increase from the avionics upgrade.

My 980 useful is 3289lbs,  reinstalling the gear doors added 35lbs.  Still glad I did it. 

Plane has less vibration and a little better performance.  I also like that it is back to factory original.

Just goes to show that the designers knew what they were doing to begin with.  I almost had mine removed some years back but... so glad I kept them on.  35 pounds is nothing.
