38,300 centimeters per second is about three-and-a-half times as fast as a Peregrine Falcon
In other words, it's 3.550 times the speed of a Peregrine Falcon, and the speed of a Peregrine Falcon is 0.2820 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Peregrine, a.k.a. Duck Hawk, Falco peregrinus)
The Peregrine Falcon can reach speeds of up to 10,800 centimeters per second 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.
