    Got a nice joystick for Xmas. Any suggestions for a fun and uncomplicated 'shoot-em-up' with dogfights?

    I'm not all that interested in setting carb heat and such, I just want to KILL something...
    "That's good enough..." usually isn't.

    If you dig deep into it you will find that you can join a group and communicate live with other pilots.

    I do good to get a LearJet from DFW to Love Field. Less than 1 minute !

    I'm still impressed that the whole world is in there.
    The airport where I lineboyed as a kid (Essex Skypark near Baltimore) is in there ...6 airports in Antarctica...the buildings are generic ..but the topography is real....visted all the places I've lived....the geysers pop off in yellowstone, Mt Rushmore in the Blackhills ...I'll have to get enough practice landing a 182 before tackling a jet... it's a 3d world atlas.

    Ah yes, FSim. Back a few years ago, I did a whole trip around North America with the Learjet, starting and returning in Montreal. I'd do a leg, navigating with the VORs etc and land it, and save my game. Then I'd pick up from there a few days later and move on. I remember starting with Montreal to Quebec City, then to Halifax, Boston, New York, DC, etc. The whole trip lasted just over a month. At the end I actually felt like I was coming home!

    It's good you chose the Lear.....You'd still be out there if you were using the J-3.

    After messing around with FS I often wondered if bin Laden and the boys may have used it to familiarize themselves with the bigger jets. The simulations are very accurate.

    Yes, the jet was nice and fast, but trickier to land. In some of the more scenic cities I would land and save, and then switch to the Cessna 182 to take off again and do some sightseeing.

    I did cheat a bit once: there was no scenery between Florida and California so I put the Learjet on autopilot and calculated the approximate time that would be needed for that leg of the trip. I then went somewhere for the evening and sure enough when I came back, I was within 20 minutes of San Diego, where I made my landing for the night.

    I used to spend a LOT of time flying the MS Flight Simulator. My wife made me stop when I got to the point where I could land the Concorde on an aircraft carrier! :-)
