The Forward Air Controllers in MiG Alley are a first for Combat flight sims. I managed to snap a close up of the FAC from the cockpit - here.

The steam is usually the only part of the train you can see from a few thousand feet altitude.
After you've oderered the attack, padlock your wingmen with F2 and fly behind them as they circle, dive, strafe. pullout and repeat the process from different angles.

These screenshots were taken on a Pentium 233MMX using a Creative 3D Blaster Banshee graphics card.
