Microsoft Flight Simulator 98


Clicking on ' Challenges' presents you with a list of pre-set flight situations ranging from landing in difficult conditions to flying a helicopter inside an aircraft carrier !

I chose the flight which involved doing a circuit at Miegs Airport, Chicago. There was an impressive number of Lear Jets in the parking area.

By the time I taxiied to take-off the plane I was supposed to follow was long gone. Not deterred I flew my circuit and landed - admiring the rather cubist representation of a modern hi-rise city which represented the limits of what was basically the Microsoft Flight Simulator 5 graphics engine with 3D graphics acceleration added.

Note the dynamic scenery object near Miegs Airport, Chicago - a sailing boat which sails about on a predetermined course. Little touches such as this could quickly drain CPU resources.
