F-117A Nighthawk Stealth Fighter through the sim-ages.
US Navy Fighters
Added videos of the memorable first mission - rescuing Boris Yeltsin. All the way through mission planning to that first sortie in the F-14 Tomcat, made famous by Tom Cruise in the movie "Top Gun".
Do not, repeat, DO NOT fire on any Russian aircraft...
Commander Air Group -
US Navy Fighters
Added the spectacular intro movie. While not reflecting the graphical quality of the sim, or any sim for some years to come in fact, it did evoke the right atmosphere !

Comments - A-10 Cuba by Eric "Hellcats" Parker is a fluid and exciting sim which ran well on modest PC's. In 2006 I managed to get the sim running again by telling XP to run it in WIn 95 mode. It was still not the most stable solution! Nonetheless I managed to construct two Air Combat Feature films and a few shorts using patented MiG technology...
"As well as the exhibits, there are a host of combat flying tips,links and resources - and don't forgot to sign the visitors book. The team at MiGMan's Combat diary have done a fantastic job cataloging the history of desktop flight simulations. We owe them a great many thanks for all their combined efforts, helping us to remember the heritage of this ever-expanding hobby."
