tom.opt is on a distinguished road

I have a transonic aircraft problem for which i want to run a RANS steady state simulation.
The boundary conditions I got are :
Mach 0.95
Static pressure 5520Pa
Static Temperature 216.65K
I have meshed the aircraft in star-ccm+ and have converted the mesh to openfoam format. ( the geometry is too complex for snappy)

I have several questions :
1. what is the best solver to use for this problem?
2. How should I set up the boundary conditions? Can i make the whole control volume a free-stream?
