All done: code outputs X,Y,Z of the hook tip, last iteration and current
iteration. It's transformed for roll, pitch, heading and yaw, and

I'll send you an update for the Spitfire/Seafire code which Erik has just
put into cvs, together with the necessary source files. 

Looking forward to your scenery stuff, and also the hook-wire interaction
