    My two favorite modern day aircraft happen to be both designed to fly a weapon that was already built. F-14 and A-10.

    DCS looks good--I got the basic free version
    but you have to keep paying, right??
    I'd like to check out their Normandy pack
    supposedly you can control ground units also?
    this sounds awesome, but are there many players on the server?

    I loved Microsoft Flight Sims
    there was a site where you could download just about any aircraft--for free
    and they also had terrain/carriers/campaigns/battles/etc for free
    from all the different wars
    the amount of downloads was amazing
    I think it was Simviation
    I was thinking about getting MSFS/MSCFS/etc again just for this site
    we had some good multiplayer battles with MS Combat Flight Sim
    or we would land on the Ark Royal and chat

    right now I'm busy and not much time anymore for PC action
    I'd get a FPS before the Flight SIms, but I don't have much time for any
    ...I remember in the late 90s or so, my brother brought me a CD with WW2 Europe Air animation 'with aircraft 'information''
    ..they had the sounds and aircraft on the airfields
    very nice

    Falcon 4 is an oldie classic. There’s addons from 3rd parties that take it to an even higher level.
