    It's been a while since I've cranked up Flight Sim, but here's a screen shot I had floating around.

    Somewhere over the Great South Bay...

    I started with FS2 on the Commodore 64. That thing was impossible to land, with its 7 frames per second framerate. Moved up to a floppy-disk based version when I had a Mac Plus. Then I got into FS98 when I got my first PC. It helped me get through grad school

    One of my Mach 2 Transatlantic trips


    landing 31R in the 747 Classic- and don't give me any guff about not being lined up, there was a crosswind...plus I was looking for Costco






    Then I got into FS9, or 2004. Got myself a yoke, throttle quadrant, and rudder pedals, and it was ON baby


    over Niagara Falls


    Warsaw




    I was really impressed, when on a transpolar flight, I spotted the Northern Lights

    Nice stuff! If I may ask, what scenery and aircraft add-ons were purchased? I'm interested in the Falcon, Tomcat Hornet, primarily.
    And what versions of the Sim are we looking at (where unlabeled)?

    Speaking of simulators, does anyone have a preference between FSX vs. X-Plane 10? Any others preferred?

    Those FS98 shots are EPIC, hard to believe we once thought that was awesome and detailed...


    I have yet to use X-Plane 10, so I can't say I have much to compare to, but FSX does all I want it to.

    If you were referring to my shots, thanks for the kind words!

    As for my sim, FSX Gold SP2 with Acceleration.

    My Tomcat, F-35, and Goshawk are freeware from Dino Cattaneo.

    The Hornet is the payware SuperBug X from VRS Simulations.

    The Falcon is Aerosoft's payware F-16X.

    The L-39 is the LotusSim payware model.

    The aircraft carrier is a freeware one that's pretty easy to find, very much worth the time to download as it even has the interior modeled.

    The St. Maarten scenery is the payware FlyTampa X variant.

    Hope that helps!

    You should see some of the other aspects of that scenery if you think that one's funny!

    Its not a flight SIM, but is a terrible airplane game. Do not even bother.
