    Well, for the default Boeing 737, I changed max_mach and max_indicated_speed in the aircraft.cfg file to absurdly high values, then went into a dive from 40000 feet, reaching over 600 knots with no overspeed warning. Whether that's a good idea is another matter. It's certainly not realistic. You might also consider the gear and flap damaging speeds. All depending on your realsim settings.

    Yes!!! Fly using the correct airspeed. I find this to be a most satisfactory method of shutting up the Dalek.

    HW is right ! Don't confuse the True Air Speed (TAS) values usually listed with the manufacturer's literature with the Indicated Air Speed (IAS) you see in the cockpit. IAS will decrease with altitude.

    If you get an overspeed warning, you are going too fast. Simple solution: slow down!
