This is one of those games I used to play with my brother about 17 years ago. Back then it was really awesome and quite addictive Never heard any music anywhere though

Default Long time, and good game

I played all levels of this game, I even played by network back to 1994. Network, i mean, manual phone connection by modem to other computer. Later by serial cable. Great!

Landings need some practice to make, but you'll land fine later. Here's what you - basicially - have to do.

1. Align yourself into the position of the runway. You may land from either direction. (North or South.)
2. Turn to the position to the runway you choose to land.
3. When the runway is in visual range (you see it clearly), decrease your throttle with the '-' (minus) key until runway speed. (You may even turn it off.)
4. Try to get close enough to the runway, with a speed between 150 and 250. If you're a bit faster, turn on the brakes. If you're too high, turn on the brakes and pitch down. if you're way too fast, leave the brakes off and set throttle back to 100%, return to point (1). If you're too slow, immediately set throttle back to 100%, return to point (1).
5. You can realease your gears and flaps safely below the speed of 250. (press G and F to release them.) Use your brakes smartly.
6. Land. Flaps allow you to land at a smaller speed, but you may still stall.
7. After landing, press ESC for debriefing or take off again. (if you have the free space.)

I tried to play with my PPJoy virtual joystick, and in theory, it works. Just press the button 'J' in flight.
