This sim was a classic. I first played it in the 1980's on an Atari ST. The scenery was very basic but the cockpit was awesome! I used to fly on instruments most of the time and play with the comprehensive information available on the 3 Multi-Function Displays.

I even managed to play it head to head with two Ataris joined by a null modem cable.

Mark "Frugal" Bush from Frugal's World of Simulations informs me that this was the first sim with a dynamic campaign.

F-16 Combat Pilot (1989)  
about:   The simple graphics of this sim belie the amount of information it presented to the pilot in real time, a milestone achievement for flight sims of the era. I first played it in the 1980's on an Atari ST. I used to fly on instruments most of the time and play with the comprehensive information available on the 3 Multi-Function Displays. It was the first flight sim with a dynamic battlefield. (Note: there is no sound on this video.)
