JetFighter 5 was released in 2003 under the title of "Jetfighter". It is a stunning looking sim which still serves the purpose of providing an action arena for neophytes to the genre, but old hands will be frustrated by the lack of controls and options..

The F.A.Q. at the official website says that you can't land on a carrier.

That's not true - you can land on a carrier - you just can't STOP on a carrier!

There's no arrestor gear and take-off - ( which is possible to set up in an instant mission - just select carrier 1 or 2 as your starting point) - consists of going full throttle then pressing "W" to release the wheelbrakes. The lack of carrier ops in the campaign is a sad let-down from the heady days of Jetfighter III.

JetFighter 5 was developed by Interactive Vision and published by Globalstar Softwarein 2003.

NEW MUSEUM EXHIBIT

Nuclear Strike was published by Electronic Artsin 1997. And that's all I know about it as I couldn't get it to run under XP. Amazon describes it as a 3rd person perspective helicopter shooting game. Check out the Hardware Requirements for a scary flash back to what was current only 7 years ago.
