    Default Spitfire IXc at 43000 feet

    Nice work getting up to 43.3K, but it looks like you may have to deal with a stall.

    Larry,
    You're 100% correct stall/ spiral dive - didn't recover until 5000 feet.
    Previous flight to 40000 feet was "unexciting" and pretty normal.

    Yes,

    That last shot looks like the classic makings of a stall!!

    One of the things I most enjoy about simming is that I live through the end of flights I'd not have survived while still flying real world. And the FAA doesn't take away my license as they recently did for probably the highest flight houred most aircraft certified female pilot in the US, Martha Lunken for flying under a very high bridge. They even made her retake her solo!!! This woman has taught many a man and many a FAA official more about flying than most of us could ever hope to learn in a lifetime and she had to retake her solo and give up thousands, not hundreds of PIC hours!!??

    Being an old chopper guy I usually fly low and slow.
