  • content_paste 747 was a civil flight sim created for the Atom computer, running in 12K of RAM ( !!!) in 1981. To give you an idea, 12k is about the size of a small web page these days. Or a few pages of text.

It was developed in conjunction with the airline LUFTHANSA of Germany. The sim came with a huge manual, a massive "notepad" containing Jeppessen airfield approach charts for almost every controlled airfield in Central Europe, and 4 high level navigation charts, and a massive poster of a real A320 cockpit."

  • content_pasteA cross platform sim with gorgeous graphics and a fluid flight model. The sim ran totally fluidly on my i7 and Nvidia 1060 graphics card. Helicopter flight modelling seems well supported. A great variety of aircraft are provided in the standard fleet. The interface and load times are a marvel to behold (they are fast!). My only question remains as to the flight planning, which I found quite obscure. I'll return to that.

And if they didn't, you tweaked it until it did. If this had not happened, I don't believe that the hobby would have gone to where it is today. " - Thomas Long.

A whole generation of flight sim fans were hooked for life on the wire frame graphics and the "dogfighting" in the Sopwith Camel. The graphical splendour rested mainly in the mind of the player - but it was a beginning! This was my very first exposure to flying on a personal computer and I was hooked!

When the the Atari ST and Amiga were introduced (which ran the Motorolla 68000 processor), new versions were released for those machines, for the Tandy and for the MacIntosh through Microsoft. The versions of FSII for the 6502 processor DID have solid filled graphics not just wireframe."
