    I was able to see Bizerk's video because I'm in the USA. Is there anywhere that we can all fly together these days with reasonably good graphics?

    Let me ask everyone: Do you still fly in any flight sims, and if you do do, which ones?

    It's been a long time for me. IL-2 Stalingrad was the last one I played.

    The last sim I played was targetware. Can't find it anymore on the net.
    I think it was better than all the others, by far.

    In fact there's a video of me playing still on youtube. Energy fighting against two cons.



    It was made by kilbee/spuint, my squadmate from wb, then from tw

    Damn that Minecraft game! My young relatives play that, too.

    You forget that I was a shitty pilot ;) But it would be fun.

    Really is fun to look back at those old videos, seeing the call signs, the lingo, etc.

    Hi rgreat!! It's been such a loooooong time that we are probably completely different people hahaha
    But it's always great to see fellow FHers! :)

    When I think back on what you guys accomplished with WB, it was so new, so much pioneering. Very cool! :D

    I use a flight Sim call that X-Plane. There are no guns no bombs no paratroopers it is I believe purely civilian.

    i have version 10. i have never useds bombs, that is NOT to say there are none for that version.
    I have used guns, they are wonky I don't think X-Plane is a very good Air Combat Simulator.
    ONE day, if I have a lot of money to spare, I MAY buy X-Plane 11 [it is a HOG of a game, going to take a LOT of money from me.
    Yes I know there is a demo ;)

    Yeah, I really need a bigger, better monster desktop to properly use the modern flight sims. https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/products/planes/tomcat/

    I have tried the 'Demo' of X-Plane 11. OH MAN, I am not going to have a good time with all it's set-up memos.
    I have had many versions in the past. I think my first of their products was X-Plane 4. In the eighties I think...
    It was hard as heck back then and has been every release since!!!
    I am looking forward to it, the money is getting saved up, bit by bit,
    [I hope the world doesn't end just-before!!!!!]
