I recall many stories from WWII about compressibility, tucking, aileron reversal, and the invention of the P-51's airfoil. Best Regards and good luck!
The airfoil he is using is very much up to the task. When Joe gets the 160 in huge, clean air we shall see some very impressive speeds with it. I really enjoyed seeing it fly in the past, perhaps the most visible plane in the circuit and at altitude.
