Ok I never realy noticed this before not sure why anyway here goes.

Im flying the P51 and was looking @ the gauges
In the pit it sayes Im going 240 or so

On the speedbar it sayes im going 310, and on the yellow dial in superwoman view it sayes im going 360, these are not perfectaly accurate speeds, but the fact remains Im getting 3 differant speed readings from 3 differant gauges

So how fast am I going? And if an american ac is rated @ 478 on the deck is that mph ?

I never rember going 470 @ sealevel in a p51 while looking @ the cockpit gauge What gives ?
