Luftwaffe Collection
Pearl Harbor (2001)

Developer: Flight One
Publisher: Just Flight
Comments: Expansion for Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator 2 that recreates the events and atmosphere at Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941.


Overall I found this to be one of the better add-ons for a quick dog-fighting fix. It also boasts the best looking palm trees I've seen outside of Ghost Recon, and that's an achievement for a flight sim!

F16 Combat Pilot exhibit upgrade

F-16 Combat Pilot
I upgraded the exhibit and added lots of gameplay info gleaned from the Commodore Amiga version of F16 Combat Pilot

" Landing this one took a little bit of time to master as you needed to get the AoA and vertical velocity spot-on. And when you had mastered that, you could throw in a bit of bad weather ( fog and low cloud down to 500ft AGL ) and if you were really lucky, it could all be in the black of night too. "
