There was also added a virtual cockpit mode, fully scrollable with readable instrument displays. The Kiowa and Blackhawk cockpits featured side by side seating, and the Blackhawk even had door gunners!

sent in some shots from this 1990 Spectrum sim. Yes, it was a Tornado sim of sorts even one of the splash screens shows an F-4 Phantom ! -
Instrument Flight with voices!
In 1987 Jim Bailey wrote and pubished an instrument flight
sim for the CP/M operating system. It even had voices!
" It hollered at you if you were off your altitude!".
Later he wrote an add-on for Microsoft Flight Sim which
provided voice Air Traffic Control using the aircraft location,
heading, altitude and radio settings extracted from the sim.
