This was one of the first flight sims I played growing up :) It was really wacky but fun. I had completely forgotten the name but finally found a video of it online this week:

Have any of you played Corncob 3D? :)

The flight model was surprisingly good for its day. You can read more about it here:

Blast from the past!

I remember buying it on floppy disk—vaguely remember it came bundled with another game.

So trippy..... which maybe explains some of the inspiration behind Hunternet, Snoop?! :lol:

my first flight sim was one I entered and programmed myself on a Commodore 64 way back in 1984

Does River raid count? :)

I think my first flight sim was some clone or pirated version of Gunship on c64, if you consider helicopters as something that flies.

No to River Raid, yes to Helicopters :D Or maybe that should be backwards to mess with Helo :badgrin:

Moog the plugin failed to load what game is it? :)

That sound effect for the ground troops being shot is properly horrific! :shock:

Looks like a cool game, I never played that one but another of my first sims was "Blue Max: Aces of the Great War" here is a video of it:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U383qVJh9fA

It was an awesome 3D sim and it had local split screen vs and a 3D turn based mode :)! It was also the first time I picked the name "Snoop Baron" :) My two younger brothers stood no chance against the Snoop Baron in his tri-plane ;)

Almost forgot it also came with an awesome manual that had a lot of info on the various famous pilots of WWI :) I read that over and over again :D

Wow that's really well done, Amiga had some amazing games I wish I had an opportunity to play it back then! I agree with Moog about the troops :shock: I really like all the special touches they added like different zoom levels and the animation when switching directions, plus the landing view :)
