Only within 30 degrees either side of dead ahead though. Having said that I
know if you zoom out the angle of view increases - but I'm not sure how much
by. Maybe its an idea to create a compass turning circle in some scenery and
measure angles.

I must admit that it is tempting to try the TrackIR for formation work.

If Smithy ever unwelds his wallet, and invests in TripleHead to go, I'll
give it a try. The forward view is probably wide enough to allow
formatin on a reasonably close aircraft.
