Flight of the Intruder
B-17 Flying Fortress
Tom Duffy sent in some new links for the B-17 Flying Fortress links.
Visitor's BookAfter searching high and low for some answers to my problems with the Saitek X36F/X35T joystick and flight controller I came across: "Fix your Saitek joysticks and throttles" - a wealth of information!
Well done Migman, its good to see flight sims are alive and well. My first experience with a flight simulator was 20 years ago! Now I consider myself an "Armchair Pilot", but very few people I know use flight sims so we are few and far between.
I purchased Microsoft Combat Flight Sim 2 and I love it! A far cry from Flight Simulator 1's monochrome wire frame graphics - with little or no game missions other than take off and landings using a keyboard as flight controls!

F-16 thrills and spills
This sim was a classic. I first played it in the 1980's on an Atari ST. The scenery was very basic but the
cockpit was awesome! I used to fly on instruments most of the time and play with the comprehensive
information available on the 3 Multi-Function Displays.
John "Bushmaster" Yasar took some photos of F16 Combat Pilot playing on a TV monitor.
Programming the sims
Sim sites in a taildive?Mike Clark has an interesting editorial at The Mag - FS news on the issues facing flight sim sites. Well worth a read.- www.themag-fs-news.com/issues/themag123.shtml - "Are our Flight Simulation sites dying?" This web link is no longer valid >>
