F-15 Strike Eagle II - 1989

Their Finest Hour - Battle of Britain
Their Finest Hour: Battle of Britain
Comments - Their Finest Hour : Battle of Britain was developed by Lawrence Holland for LucasArts in 1989. George Lucas had been a fan of World War 2 movies since childhood, and the famous dogfight scenes in Star Wars were directly inspired by these films... even down to the gun turret in the Millenium Falcon... based on the B-17 Flying Fortress.
