There is actually a speedometer app for the Iphone that uses the doppler effect to calculate the speed of your plane I downloaded it yesterday but have not yet had the chance to test it.Unfortunatly it didnt work for the video so i hope it will work in real life.

Managed to get two readings(a big source of error is the air-temperature, I set it at 90F.)
At 0:22 I got 111,4MPH and 84MPH at 1:03.

Don't know how reliable it is. Would have guessed that a jackal with that setup would be faster.
