MiG goes to Paris

Su27 2.5

MiG-29 Fulcrum The first time the west good a good look at the MiG-29 Soviet "Superfighter" was at the Paris Airshow in 1989.

My first MiG sim

The first I heard of the MiG-29 was in the sim - MiG-29 Fulcrum by Domark (1990).

Incredible free upgrade

Su27 2.5

I finally downloaded the upgrade to Su-27 Flanker 2.0- which then becomes Su-27 Flanker 2.5, and allows you to fly my favourite a/c - the MiG-29 ! Having just acquired my Thrustmaster H.O.T.A.S. Cougar it was time to get deeply into the flow and ebb of a fast jet sim again... so I started creating training missions for my force of one!

When I get deeply into something I like to start at the shallow end - so these missions are dead easy! ... if you call flying a MiG or Sukhoi around in the fog, dropping bombs and landing safely easy .. Smiling

First I check out the MiG-29K

Flight Sim Toolkit in Computer Pilot

" Flight Sim Toolkit gets another article in Computer Pilot - Computer Pilot - in issue 6 volume 3, this also marks a milestone after many months of asking for the release of the source code. Yes, the source code is available and I'm looking for developers able to bring this into the 21st century including porting it to other platforms. " - Adrian Brown
