This was the dawn of 3D graphics acceleration on PCs. The Banshee turned my modest Pentium 233MMX into a screaming graphics machine, with all the great Voodoo graphics effects and a silky smooth frame rate on most sims.
MiGMan, 1998
The Aimsworth Viper I was an exacting representation of the real Lockheed F-16 Fighting Falcon cockpit in all major dimensions, true to the original.
The Atari ST 1040 computer was my introduction to the world of flight simulation. Titles like Gunship, Falcon, F-19 Stealth, F-15 Strike Eagle II and others made use of the dedicated graphics and sound hardware built in to the Atari ST. It took some years for the IBM PC's to catch up.

Saab has six locations around Australia with different business units concentrating on C4I systems, military systems support, civil security, camouflage and aircraft support.
There was a time when I flew in MiGMan's MiG-pit Mk-I with 120 functioning switches and buttons. It worked, but what a pain in the khyber it was to reprogram it! In December 1997 Saitek brought out the PC-Dash, a device which when combined with the X-35/36 programmable joystick and throttle effectively replaced my whole cockpit! | As of 2018, Saitek has been acquired by Logitech.

"Sir Clive Sinclair has been inventing electronic devices for over 35 years. Although he is best known for his computers, he has to date released over 70 different products ranging from amplifiers to multimeters to electric vehicles. He continues to produce new items at the rate of about one a year."

Thanks to Planet Sinclair.
