    Yeah. It must be fun trying to decide which P-51 you want to fly today, or maybe the spitfire, or the super Corsair!

    One thing.. why does it always seem like the jet moving at such slow pace thru the clouds (even ones right next to the airplane) when ground/air speed is like 500+ MPH? Clouds cannot be always moving in same direction as the jet but that's what I've noticed over the years flying commercial.

    You have no good reference of speed when you’re in the air. Fly a slow plane through the clouds and you’ll definitely notice the difference!

    I never gave it much thought.
    The closer you are the faster you appear to be.
