Hi VikingGrandad.
Here is a photo of the Lanc over Berlin from the FS2004 add on.

FSX is just starting to come down in price... Mind you, I myself have FS2004 and don't intend to buy FSX for quite some time, but it's worth a thought. Of course, as far as I have been able to tell, most of the "upgrades" are graphic. Truth be told, you could be running FS2002, or even FS2000 for a flight simulator (flight training purposes) and still be just fine. Upgrades of FS seem to be mostly eye candy and some extra stuff that I really think they were prefectly capable of doing back with FS2000.

Nice picture, by the way. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

I have FS2004 and Lancaster/Mosquito, Spitfire/Tempest and Wings of Power as add on, which give you a chance to fly a lot of WW2 aircrafts.
As I mentioned to VikingGranddad the handling of the individual AC are very different and close to reality, I think I can judge as I have been flying DC -3, Grumman AA5,
PA28, Cessna182, Mooney and MFI and logged between 100 and 400 h in each. Are still looking for a chance to fly a P51 and a Mossie.

One word: Crazy Horse. she's a P-51D here in the US with an extra set of controls. The purists would die, but how else are you going to check out in a P-51 (which is what she's mostly used for, by the way).
