I think it might work, as I'm updating the camera location, not the target. It has sounds too ;).
L.E.: just tested with dinamic view off.. it still works. ;).

But we're going way off topic here :).. hope Gijs ain't noticing :P.

I'm sure JSBSim could do it. :) Not sure about YASim...

The JSBSim P-51D implements transonic affects. If you push the Mach number high enough it will actually have a structural failure at about Mach 0.84. Onset of compressibility is at about Mach 0.78 where it starts to porpoise and tuck. JSBSim does not do compressibility affects by default and custom functions need to be written to implement this. Since what happens with compressibility is very aircraft specific (what is the onset Mach number and at point point does the airframe fail - does it just tuck or does it do something else as well...) means that custom functions need to be written in any case.
