Forces on a gyro in a plane

If I have roll pitch and yaw attitude of a plane, and roll pitch and yaw rates relative to earth frame, and xyz accelerations on the pilot, how do I back-derive the x y and z outputs of a pretend gyro installed on said plane?

The forces the gyro will report will not be the the roll pitch and yaw rates relative to the earth, I've got some math that uses drift correction, matrices and euler angles to take this gyro output and re-create the roll pitch and yaw attitude of the plane along with the rates they are changing and I want to test the math out in simulated flights (the sim being the one that provides the numbers I mention in paragraph 1).
