I read when scott crossfield hit mach 2 they did this.
Do you think a sim that delt with test piloting, would sell. Like around the 1950 you fly a plane on a certain test than move to another test or plane. the reason I ask cause I been reading alot lately on the test pilots of that time, it looks like a great time to be a pilot I know you would'nt have the combat element, but maybe some weopons testing.

Fascinating idea. Can't remember having heard of it before. The mind boggles at the possibilities. Can't see it being a big seller, but, in theory at least, it could be an excellent game/sim.
