Aces Collection Docking with a Zeppelin year: tags: description: This picture and others like it amazed me - I had assumed that aircraft docking with Zeppelins only occured in games like 'Crimson Skies' by Microsoft, but here it is in real life. (From the history of flight presentation included in this package).
Air Power Cold War year: 2000 tags: 15 minutes of fun description: Here's a fun mission that takes only 15 minutes to fly using Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002. You can fly the whole mission with one eye on the compass heading and one eye (and your camera) out the cockpit window.
The leg between B and C is through some winding valleys and will test your nerve at 200 feet! Don't forget to turn Terrain Mesh complexity to 100 %.
Air Power Cold War year: 2000 tags: Installation description: In general the aircraft worked in FS 2002 (apart from minor issues), the sceneries should be deactivated due to flickering. Unless you don't mind flickering!
Battle of Britain Memorial Flight year: 2001 developer: Blue Arrow publisher: Just Flight tags: description: The product is presented as a tribute to the BOBMF and a high standard of production is apparent throughout, from the full colour manual to the recreation of RAF Coningsby and the individual aircraft of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

Flight of the Intruder year: 1990 tags: description: Until Falcon 3.0 was released, Flight of the Intruder led the pack in features. I remember getting FOTI for the Atari ST, sometime after I came across Falcon, and being amazed at the depth of the simulation, especially the mission planning options.
Jet-Pilot year: 1996 tags: description: "As far as I know, this was the only computer simulation based on the Lightning aircraft.
Had it been fully developed much earlier, it might have been a useful training aid for the RAF. It could have helped ground radar operators and controllers appreciate the pilots problems, etc."

The only place I've seen a real B-58 is in the USAF Museum in Dayton (it's the Bendix Trophy winner). It's pretty cool. I believe it still holds world records in in some speed/distance/altitude categories.
F-111 True story behind the 'dump and burn' technology year: tags: description: Warning: Laconic Aussie humour ahead.
F-111 Dump and Burn year: tags: description: Andrew Rogencamp reports:
"I thought you might be interested in this photo I took of the F-111 at the Gold Coast (Brisbane, Queensland) indy car race on the weekend. (14th October 2000). I was on the 30th floor of an apartment building and the fly by was at eye level. Awesome!" Note that in this image you can actually see the fuel dump streaming into the afterburner.
F-15 year: tags: description: McDonnell Douglas F-15E Strike Eagle
F-15 Sims versus reality year: tags: description: Chino said: "
I spent about 20 minutes talking with the young pilot seated on the well-armed jet in this picture. He got a B.S. in aeronautical science at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (Florida), getting his civilian ratings up to CFII in the process (all single props). Then he applied to the Mass. Air National Guard to be an F-15 pilot.
They sent him for 2 years of USAF training (T-37, T-38, F-15), and he has been flying the F-15 in Cape Cod for one year now. The lucky stiff!
He said one thing that made me feel a little good. He spent a lot of time with F-15 by Janes Combat Simulations before he went to USAF/MANG. He said that before his real F-15 training, he had never survived more than 5 minutes at full realism in the sim. After he started real F-15 training, it finally all made sense, and he started to do great."
MiG-29 Fairford, 1993 year: tags: description: In 1993 a famous air to air collision occured between two MiG-29s...famous because it took place in front of the world press! Rob "Bomber" Henderson remembers:
" As it happens, I was there and saw most of the event happen!
The 1989 incident was at the Paris Air Show, and involved the famous Anatoly Kvotchur.
The MiG was doing a solo display and had a birdstrike while doing a low speed, knife edge pass. This caused severe yaw with the aircraft well below single engine safety speed. Kvotchur managed to steer the aircraft momentarily to ensure it wouldn't go in the crowd and ejected when the aircraft was almost vertically pointing downwards with the pitot tube just feet away from the ground....

Stearman year: tags: description: Boeing Stearman. Chino reported: "Here's a shot of me in the Yellow Peril and also a cockpit shot of the approach to Riverside (CA) airport.

I only keep copies I have purchased for my personal use and research for the Museum. If there is an old sim you want, email the publisher - if enough people request them they may reissue the sim! Doing a Google search for "abandonware" may turn up some results too.
Links to sim publisher's websites can be found under the Organisations menu at left
If you have lost the keycard or manual, contact the manufacturer. I'm sure you have a legal copy of the sim, but believe it or not there are some folks who don't care to support the industry and actively distribute pirated games. Most manufacturers can supply replacement manuals if you provide proof of purchase.
Also, use Google!
Links to sim publisher's websites can be found under the Organisations menu at left
It's good for friends to share an interest. Show your support for your friends in the gaming industry by purchasing a copy of the game for yourself and the industry can continue to grow. Who knows, maybe one day you can work as a game programmer!
Most games have free demos you can download and try before you buy.
Links to sim publisher's websites can be found under the Organisations menu at left.
DOS games used to be very hard to set up in many cases. Under windows 95 and 98 the older games will often run nicely in a DOS window. On the other hand they may not run without extensive tweaking, or not at all! Windows XP is pretty good at running older games. Also, use Google!
Anyway would like to ask a question please. Do you know where I can download this 2.5 training missions. Iv'e searched all over and can't find the flanker 2.0 site is no longer there and cant find on the new sight either.
Jetfighter I year: tags: description: Question:
My name is Ben, and I have a copy of the original Jetfighter I game. I remember playing this game when I was younger and it was a lot of fun. I recently found a disk I have with a copy of this game on it. I managed to get all the files off of the disk and tried to play it, but the disk was damaged and some of the files are corrupted, the jf.exe executable file is one that is corrupted.
I have searched the internet but can find almost no info on this game. I ran across your page and recognized the game image you have on your website. I was wondering if there was anyway you could help me restore my copy to working order by sending me good copies of game files to replace my bad ones. I would really appreciate it if you could help me out. Let me know if you can help!
Google is your best bet. You might have some luck at www.ebay.com as well.
I recently got a new computer with Win XP Media Center Edition. When I tried to install Flt Sim 98, the Install CD stopped the installation --- stating that I must first choose to install Direct X 5. When I selected to install that Direct X 5, it shut down the installation.
EF2000 year: tags: description: Hey mit navn er Niklas, jeg er selv helt vild med ef2000. Mit problem er dog bare at jeg ikke kan kÃ¸re min gamle version af ef2000 i xp, og jeg aner ikke hvordan jeg skal fÃ¥ fat i ef2000 v 2.0. Kan du hjÃ¦lpe mig med hvor jeg evt kan opstÃ¸ve den henne eller fÃ¥ en kopi?
Read the Museum article: "F-22 Total Air War Reassembled".
I figured that you would probably be the best person to ask about this:
Do you know of any console games that are dedicated to Helicopter Combat?
(Like something that offers you several vehicles to choose from?)Â I know that planes have Ace Combat and Crimson Skies in their name, but is there something that's dedicated solely to choppers?
I'd be happy even if was modeled after Twisted Metal.
Sincerely, Karl Gruehn.

Saitek X36 analog in Win XP year: tags: description: Hi there I have a Saitek X36 analog combo. Can you tell me if there is a driver for Windows XP for this system? If there is can you point me in the direction of a download site?
I am Henk Koelewijn from the Netherlands, and my home email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
The reaseon that i mailt is, i saw on a website from Len "Viking 1" Hjalmarson, and he had very cool skins for Rowan's Battle of Britain.
I wanted these kins, but unfortently, i can't download them they are blocked, and couldn't email hime because his email doesn't exist anymore.
Could you help me with those skins on his site, he had them for all planes.
And does he probaly has them for Mig Alley, and Flying Corps as well.
I am looking for all the skins that i can get for the Rowan Software Games.
is it possible to play "Sabre Ace" under Windows XP? I try with Compatibility Mode - but have Error in Cockpit View
Sorry to ask you - but i cant find nowhere else Support. (I think i'm the last on Earth who likes to play this old fart of 3Dfx Game)
If we can find out how to, then I might even fire it up up myself! I enjoyed this sim, it was the first 3dFX sim I bought and my first sight of those "3-D" planes is indelibly etched into my memory.
My call sign was Airbiscuit (yes, very nice). It seemed fitting at the time. I flew with other gamers like CasperR and Lexus. I have pulled the games out and reloaded them on my computer to just fiddle around with them. Having a great time and wondering if there is anyone left out there to play with. Iâ€™ve read in a few forums that some are still playing some newer games (Lock-On). Anyway, just wondering if there were any FA people still around.
The â€œOriginalâ€ Airbiscuit
Any FA or USAF multiplayers still out there?
Janes WWII Fighters missions year: tags: description: MIGMAN , Call me a dummy but please tell me where your missions/campaigns for Janes WWII Fighters are 'hid' on your site!
Which, by the way, is wonderfully fascinating. I have managed to spend the entire rainy morning navigating the Flight Sim Museum.
I have search the web but many sites are no longer active, any assistance is appreciated.
HERE - Don't get too excited, I think I only finished authoring the one mission....
your website is awesome, reminds me of the old days if you know what I mean ;)
Well I never had problems running old sims except of Jane's Israeli Air Force now... with excactly the same issues you described on your website. The next issue is that parts of the menues are not accessible like Graphics, Gameplay and so on...
Isn't there really a chance to get them running? (maybe with the help of a tool..) I remember the great time I had with IAF... it's just too bad that it crashes for some stupid reasons.
Hey, I know youre not a tech support or anything but I was hoping you might know how to run Jane's IAF in win XP. It keeps crashing on me.
Cool site man !!!! year: tags: description: Cool site man!!!! It is a blast from the past.
I just built a 95/98/dos machine in a sea of XP's that I game on in my home lan. I started out with an Amstrad that had the keyboard and puter all in one. Gaming has been my life, especially SIMs.
Thanks for the great museum!!!! I just got ATF gold, and US navy fighters running again on that old time puter. They were sims before their time. I have many of the sims listed on your site !!!!
Take care, Bob
Thanks Bob, I agree about ATF and all the USNF series!
Orbiter: flying on a 287 chip year: tags: description: "ORBITER is a space shuttle simulation from PC Services, Digital Illusions, and
As I recall, this and 'Falcon AT' were among the first PC games to detect and use the 287 chip for floating-point calculations at a time when those chips went into an optional socket ( if the socket was even present on the board).
Good info, thanks Robert.
Combat Flight Sim 2 - chase plane year: tags: description: I have cfs 2 and would like to know if there is any way to stay locked onto the chase view of the plane while manuvering? (That is to say directly in back of the plane at all times.) Any help would be helpful. Thank You.
There is a chase plane view - look in the help file from the main sim interface.
David C. Maschino of Duosoft year: tags: description: I have been looking for a way to reach the old Duosoft people. I have always enjoyed Janes Fighters Anthology even today.
Unfortunately I did not purchase the sim until after I had upgraded to Windows 98 and by the time I found out about Duosoft and their "tool kit". Since their warning stated it wouldn't work under Windows 98 I never bothered to install the tool kit. Fast forward to today and I have upgraded my PC Windows XP and found a way to run the old programs. I installed the tool kit and then discovered that I need a code to gain full access. I would like to pay some one for the code, but I can't seem to find a way to contact David C. Maschino of Duosoft. Would you have some way of contacting him?
i'm a fan of US Navy Fighters, the EA game issued in 1994. It's the most user friendly flight sim i ever played, and it's a pity it can't be played in XP environment. I have two questions for you. 1st, which game playable in XP environment is similar to this one, with similar game play and comparable user friendlines? 2nd: Do you know if and where the official game patches are available? I'm thinking of suiting up an old pentium to play the game, maybe even build it in a mock flight cabin..
MS Flight Sim on a Mac? year: tags: description: Do you know where I can get an (older) version of MS flight sim that runs on a mac?
We have also done some work for Nevada RED Flag training grounds and experimental larger Korean theater. We have just now beefing up the site and plan on release new and improved versions of the theaters this year.
I think your site visitors might find it very essential part of Falcon 4.0 history to have the one and only theater addon site listed as Link :)
Thank you for your contribution to Flight Sims, much appreciated!
Snake Man, PMC.
The site is now listed under Developers
MiGMan description: Hello.
I have read your Flight Sim Museum site, its great.
As I'm expert on Falcon 4.0 scene I thought I share some information with you so you can update your site. I'm the guy behind most of Falcon 4.0 theater (terrain) creation, I started the stuff on hmm 2000 with Codec who is now to my understanding the leading programmer on Allied Force.
Super Huey year: tags: description: Comments: Super Huey has been my first flight simulator in 1986 and I have a gorgeous memory of it.
Great site you have there! I have been looking high and low for this CFS2 add-on, but neither company seems to carry it anymore. Would you happen to know where I could purchase this great product?? I have been trying to devise my own missions with the freeware out there, but would just assume buy the real thing so I can fly some great missions!
Can you help please, I've installed Flight Unlimited 3 onto my computer
with the first disc and it detected that I have windows 2000 installed.
There are three discs in the box and when I've tried to install the second
disc the programme has locked up all the flights when run are on a crash
I've tried to uninstall this programme but was unable to because a message
came up saying "The log 'C:\program files\Flight3\flight3v.log'is not valid
or the data has been corrupted. uninstallation will not continue," I don't
know what to do now, I can't use this Flight Simulator as it is. and I can't
uninstall either can you please help?
yours sincerely W McCartney.
Fighter Squadron,SDOE in XP Pro year: tags: description: Hi, this want play good with XP Pro. The planes just hang in the air and want move. would a patch or joystick help?
I have a copy of this software that I bought a number of years ago and installed
on my old computer. Trying to install it on my new computer I got a message
telling me that I should check out WWW.LGLASS.com because my version of windows
was not around when the software came out. The old computer had Windows
98 on it and now I have XP.
When I tried to load it, it got so far on disc one and stopped telling me
put disc 2 in. I did this but it didn't recognise the disc. I then got
a message saying I should go to http:// indeo.ligos.com but this site has
confused me further.
Can you tell me how I can get the software to install and run on my XP computer?
I had the Amstrad version of this game. I spent hours and hours flying that choppers.
One of may favourite gamesâ€¦
Flying Corp Gold in XP year: tags: description: I purchased Flying Corp Gold many years ago and absolutely love it. Still.
I have an old Win95 Gateway that we played on, but it is taking valuable space in my tiny computor room and my wife cannot justify keeping the old Gateway just to fly. Our Dell has WinXP and will not run Flying Corp.
I've put DOSBox on, or at least I think I have, but when trying to load, an error message comes up stating I haven't enough memory. I haven't even used a third of my memory!
If you can help at all, I would appreciate it. I am fairly illiterate when it comes to any PC, and now my eleven year old has fallen in love with Flying Corp.
F-117A Stealth Fighter manual year: tags: description: I am writing to inquire whether you may know where to find the original manual for F-117A Stealth Fighter, as i have looked for a few months with no success to locate it.. If you have any information on where i can acquire the manual i would be most grateful if you emailed it to me or a link to it.
WOW !! year: tags: description: Iâ€™m actually surprised how little of this type of simulation comes out anymore. Itâ€™s like the entire genre died (or was bought by Mr Gates.) In fact, one of my favorite games that I still talk about today (and I hate myself for selling my last copy- I had more on backorder-never came) was Bruce Artwickâ€™s â€œTowerâ€. That was awesome!!
Anyway, by the late 90â€™s, there was so little â€œgoodâ€ stuff coming, I sort of lost interest in it. They were buggy; the PC speeds were constantly changing; people just couldnâ€™t keep up with the ever changing demands and even if you had a â€œUber PCâ€, the results were often mediocre.
Iâ€™d love to see it all come back. In fact, the cool way to work the sims would be to have it all transfer to Playstation or Xbox since sims are all about the graphics/flight modeling. then we need good rudders and HOTAS for the PS3 and/or Xbox. Games exist for them but very â€œarcadeâ€.
Thanks for the memory trip. Keep it up.
Let me know if there is anything coming that will rekindle my â€œflight feverâ€. When I sort through the pile of stuff, Iâ€™ll shoot you a list to see if there is anything you want.
Thanks indeed for the encouraging words Rob! This sort of feedback does keep me going.
MiGManI accidentally stumbled across your site and Iâ€™m now completely overcome by the memories this site stirred up. I started off with my first PC bought entirely in order to use Falcon AT. Then the first Jetfighter.
It didnâ€™t take too long and I was importing and selling Elite sims and carrying Thrustmaster in my buddyâ€™s store. I still have two sets of Thrustmaster Rudders new in boxes in the basement. I remember all of this. What a trip. I have at least two piles of old software in the basement office. TFX, JF3, Janes F15; F18, Yeager; the OLD F15 Eagle on 3.5â€ (I think?). Unreal.
