    Nice pics Mike

    Takes me back (a long time) when me and my bro used to link Atari ST's (yeah, before PC's were cool) and play some F15 fighter game or something. Used to have a dog-fight battle.

    My party piece was hiding inside a pyramid in the dessert, then jetting off afer he flew over. The graphics were a bit iffy and if you landed you could actually drive under the pyramids and park up

    Them's were the days

    Is that a "gamertag" aboveyour plane?

    My uncle used to do flight sim online with people that sit and play as air traffic control and stuff.

    Proper hardcore stuff

    OMG my mate does the proper way of "radioing in" to ask for clearance etc!

    Not my gametag no - I don't do it online, although it is awesome when you do hehe!!!

    Simo: I had "Tornado" on my Amiga 500+ - that was awesome!

    Viper: A319 FTW!
