Geon-Hong is on a distinguished road

I'd like to simulate 3D wing with simpleFoam but it is too massive work for me.

So what I want to do is that I run a potentialFoam with very large computational domain and extract flow field around the wing at about twice of mean chord length apart from the wing, and then use the extracted flow field as a boundary condition for simpleFoam.

My question is that

1) is it possible?

2) how can I do this if possible?

I need your help. Thank you very much.
