    PART 1: RL. Does anyone have a list of airspeed records set by prop planes (esp wartime ones). I remember some Pom diving a Spit to Mach .8 or something during the war - and I'd be interested in other stories.

    PART 2: In game
    What is the fastest you have dived your favourite plane? (IAS) Two competitions:

    1) I went 'xy' speed and survived to fly home

    2) Wheeeeee!!!! *SPLAT* (survival is optional)

    The planes legal for this competition are:

    109
    190
    Spitfire
    P51
    P47
    Novelty (He-111, I-16, P.11c, P-38, J8A etc)

    Screenshots required for more outrageous claims (i.e. "I dived my Gladiator to 800kph")

    Interesting...

    I've seen the maximum speed in a dive for some late model Spits get as high as Mach .95. Thats pushing it though...

    What a great pic!!!
    That's it - I'm grabbing a Fw190! What height did you dive from?

    Current Fw190 leader - 1100kmh!

    1010+ km/h ( indicated speed ) with out breaking anything on P47 and landing.( no arcade settings )

    1100 with no wing is weak.

    I've done 3233kph in a Me 162 from 60,000ft going directly down. I forgot to save track too, I'm too stupid! Fact.

    Ofcourse invunrability was on.

    did get it up to 1110 kph but no faster,could this be something to do with the sound barrier?
