"... if it didn't run the Flight Simulator floppy, it wasn't IBM PC compatible..."

Of course I remember a real cool moon landing sim in 1980 or so, on my High School's big computer. (This was the same one where I used the PRINT command to list all the Pink Floyd album titles for my notebook...) :)

We don't need no stinkin' Link Trainers, we got computers now!

Thanks,
MRK

Mine was Chuck Yeager's Advanced Flight Trainer followed soon thereafter by Microsoft Flight Simulator 4.

I had that one, flying through cones and square shapes - and had a cassette tape included with some insights from General Chuck himself, as I recall! :)
