Blue Max was the first “flight sim” I ever played. At the time my Atari 1200XL was one bad arsed machine and this was THE game. I love this game and spent 100s of hours playing it. Now I look back on it with fondness ever though it is quite ridiculous compared to modern games.
Sit back and watch the battle unfold! This video features some of the rarest WWII aircraft anywhere in the world, including the worlds only airworthy IL-2 Shturmovik, and original Fw-190A-5. Other aircraft include the Bf-109E-3, P-40C, A6M3-22, P-51 Mustang, B-25 Mitchell, P-47D Thunderbolt, Spitfire, Hurricane, A-1 Skyraider, T-6 Texan, also including clips of a German operational Hetzer tank destroyer, and Flak 88. These aircraft and artifacts belong to Paul Allen of Flying Heritage Collection, Historic Flight Foundation, and Heritage Flight Museum. These clips are part of life around Paine Field during the summer time.
Historic Flight Foundation and Heritage Flight Museum showed off their beautiful P-51B and P-51D Mustangs for Vintage Aircraft Weekend 2012! Learn some facts about both aircraft in this video and please be sure to check out both museums websites for even more great information and the individual histories of each of the aircraft in their collections! And as always, make sure to visit the museums in person and help support flying warbirds!
I just discovered this trailer on YouTube and found the animation style interesting. Check out the trailer below. This short film is available on DVD from Amazon and I have included a link below the trailer.
