Speed of sound

Postby MIG29pilot » Thu Jun 04, 2015 6:25 pm

I have noticed while flying supersonic aircraft that often, when approaching an airport at over mach 1 (say, 1300 knots) you can hear the plane coming. Could we model the speed of sound (i.e. delay {if: var distance .> ? than delay===)

It's not as simple as that. You need to delay everything sound related.
