Exhibit: Strike Aces / Fighter Bomber (1989)

Publisher: Activision and Accolade
Platform: Atari ST, Commodore Amiga and PC
Comments: The sim was set in a bombing competition inspired by Gen. Curtis LeMay's training events. It featured an unusual mix of flyable aircraft: F-4 Phantom , F-15E Strike Eagle, F-111 Aardvark, MiG-27 Flogger, RAF and Luftwaffe Tornado and the Saab Viggen.

Dante Mendes De Patta sent in these screenshots which show the player aircraft and the F-111 cockpit from what was surely a unique combat sim.

Exhibit: Flugwerft Schleissheim

Location: Schleissheim, a suburb of Munich
Comments: This museum contains exhibits ranging from Otto Lilienthal's pioneering 19c hang-gliders to the WWII Heinkel-111.

- Hans Trauner sent me additional information on this collection of military aircraft


Falcon 3.0

I added info on the Falcon Gold reissue (still available) which contains Falcon 3.0, MiG-29, Hornet, Operation Fighting Tiger and Art of The Kill. In my opinion it's worth getting (USD $9.95) for the Art of the Kill video alone!
