Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Campaign report

Battle of Britain Memorial Flight - 2001
Battle of Britain Memorial Flight was published by Just Flight in 2001. The Hurricane in this product is one of the best looking aircraft models I have yet seen in a sim. RAF Coningsby has been the home of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight since 1976 and Blue Arrow have put together a beautiful rendition of the base which despite it's wealth of detail wasn't a frame-rate killer. There is a 25 mission campaign included and flyable aircraft are :
  • DeHavilland Chipmunk
  • Douglas Dakota
  • Hawker Hurricane
  • Avro Lancaster
  • Supermarine Spitfire
I took them all for a spin and had some pretty good dogfights in the campaign. Read on - Battle of Britain Memorial Flight campaign

F-15 Strike Eagle 2 revisited

F-15 Strike Eagle II - 1989

In 1989 F-15 Strike Eagle II had one of the richest and most interactive sim environments ever seen. The virtual world was full of activity from enemy fighters and ships. Who can forget "Director Mode" ? It let you sit back and watch as the sim followed the action. Pour a cup of coffee, grab a donut and watch the action unfold!

Pushing a 286 to the limit!

F-15 Strike Eagle I - 1985
This sim pushed 1980's technology to the limit. It looks crude now but consider that it ran on a 286 processor at 8 MHz and it wasn't too shabby! And how about this - The original code weighs in at a hefty 53 K/ - F-15 Strike Eagle IF-15 Strike Eagle I
