Default Flight manuevers in OpenFOAM

I am doing simulations with a model of the Boeing X-48B and was wondering how I would go about simulating flight manuevers. Like simulate the take off procedure and then fly at constant altitude and then decline altitude as if it was landing. Or maybe simulate the effect of a sharp turn. I have done multiple simulations at different angles of attack but I would like to show the changing effects of the change in pitch of the aircraft. If anyone has an idea of how to go about this, please let me know!

elvis will become famous soon enough

what about the 6DOF stuff from Extend? (okay this is OF-1.6-ext) 6DOF Body is what a flight manuever is!

Thanks for the reply elvis! I am doing undergraduate research so I am not a professional when it comes to this CFD stuff so I appreciate the help. I will look into the solver you posted. Thanks again!
