Microsoft Flight Simulator graphics 1998-2002

Comparison of aircraft and scenery in Microsoft Flight Simulator 98 and Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002. I took up all the flyable aircraft in the standard release of the sim, and where possible, flew them in the same locations, enabling a quick look at how far the graphics had advanced in 5 years.
