I don't know how many of you have been to Migman's Flight Sim Museum, but it's a place worth visiting. Well written articles about various flight simulations from late 1970s to the present and featuring priceless screenshots.

Migman is a very dedicated and passionate aviator from Austria who had been flight simming before some of you were born. He gets involved in real-world aviation events and, as far as I know, uses home-built cockpits. He is also very active running various flight simulation web sites.

For the work on the Flight Museum he enlisted folks from all around the world, including a few game design celebrities.

Some of the games he listed still need a review so if you feel like getting involved you can write an article and Migman will be happy to post it. I wrote a few essays for Migman myself.(Tomahawk, Fighter Pilot, Ace of Aces)

Err .. yeah - AUSTRALIA!!

FWIW, I'm the guy that sent in the details on the Sublogic flight sim of 1980.
It ran on my TRS-80, which used an audio cassette tape drive to load the program, and the computer itself ran at a heady 1.77 mhz, with a staggering 16k of ram. (yeah, that's K, *not* M !)
