T-33 spin analysis using X-Plane Flight Simulator

Happy new year to everyone!

My next short project was to use the X-Plane 10 flight simulator in order to recreate the spins flown in the Canadian NRC T-33. The flight data gathered during the flights were used to drive the simulator and create a multiple camera video for spin analysis.

A screenshot of the first version of the video is seen below. Time permitting a conference paper will be submitted soon that describes the procedure and how the simulation flight can be used for spin analysis.
