Yep,l 6000FPM can get you up quickly, IF departure control lets one go for it... Fond memories of the ER-2/U-2 departures out of Moffett Field, 18000 feet by the end of the 8000 foot runway. Roughly 80+ degree departure angles... LOL

While working at ZHU in the 80’s, there was an air show at Kelly AFB. With coordination, a block of airspace above the airport went up to FL240 so that the U2 flyover could zoom upwards and give the spectators a show. The ARTCC radar sweeps every 12 seconds. I saw the U2 altitude display at 3000, lost it for 2 sweeps, and regained it at FL240. Needles to say, I was impressed.
