Going Flying

When I’m not thinking up crazy stories or taking pictures of nature, I like to go flying.

As a huge fan of military aviation and history, I enjoy flight simming. Thanks to Thirdwire and their amazing flight simulator, I can enjoy air combat over Vietnam, Israel, Western Europe, and the North Atlantic. But wait! It doesn’t stop there. StrikeFighters 2 is very customizable. Due to the efforts of many modders around the world, I can create separate, additional installs for many other locations and eras. I fly in the unfriendly skies over Korea, India, Australia, and the Pacific Islands including Japan and the Philippines. I can fly aircraft in any year from 1914 to the present, and I can fly over these added on places and times for Free! Yes, talented modders from around the world add new aircraft, terrain, tanks, ships, and many other things and add them for no charge.

Below, I compiled a series of recordings from my Battle of Britain (ww2) installation.

This is me…relaxing.

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    Lego video games are more my speed, but my husband would probably love this. His first computer games were flight simulator. These days he fights on the ground with Call of Duty.

    Love it! Looks like great fun. 🙂


  3. Looks like a great deal of fun! There was quite a cool ‘Indiana Jones’ style flight sim with 1930s dieselpunk/deco aircraft, years back, which I used to quite enjoy playing – forget the name. It was more arcade than sim. Had to give up because it ran OK under Win 98, but XP killed it.

      I remember that one. I never played it, but I knew it was popular. This one is just terrific. Creating anything or changing anything about it often includes a bit of history research and, don’t tell anyone, but I rather enjoy that. 😉
