Here is an archive of changes and additions to the JSBSim T-38.  Most of the
upgrades are to the panel, which now has a throttle/flap quadrant with
clickable cutoff and starter switches,  improved background art, EGT, Nozzle,
Fuel Flow, Oil Pressure and Fuel Quantity gauges.  And the VOR needle works
now.

The FCS now models the flap/slab interconnect, which gives you extra nose-up
slab bias when the flaps are down

I've set up the VC view for the YF-23 and this required some small changes
to the model - the canopy hoop was too wide, so I had to narrow it a bit,
and I also had to make some of the cockpit surround parts double-sided as
there were some gaps when looking out.  The pilot's also de-selected when
in view 0.

I've tweaked the YF-23 fdm a little as well, using the control input
scaling feature so I could increase the lift and drag of the ailerons.
This is so that they more closely match the flap characteristics and
improve the speed-brake stability (well, that's the theory;)

I've also used the scaling feature to tweak the anti-roll input fed into
the ailerons when the rudder control input is used - it's still not
perfect but using rudder input now produces less roll and is easier to
control.

Oh, and it goes faster too:)  Infact, at lowish level (2000ft) the max
speed I could get out of it, without reheat, was 1.39 Mach, which
compares well with the figure I found of 1.4 Mach (although the alt
wasn't given).  The performance figures I've put into the fdm are
actually at the service ceiling of 55000ft (about 1.9 Mach with reheat).
