    Tony Vallillo has long regaled us with his tales of airline flying. But flying the big jets was not enough; he dreamed of owning his own plane. This ultimately came about in a way that involved knowing just the right people and looking at just the right time. In part 1 the deal was made, but now he owned a plane on the wrong coast of the US that needed to be flown home, resulting in an adventure of low and slow flying.

    What exactly is a computer? The meaning is evolving, and your next computer is as likely to be a tablet or phone as a more traditional desktop or laptop PC. Software development is moving to these mobile devices as well and yes, that includes flight simulators. We take a broad look at this area, what's currently available, what it takes to get and run these apps and where this branch of the flightsim hobby may be headed.

The model has lots of features like a crosswind crab system unique to the B-52, terrain radar, high resolution textures, drag chute, flexing wings, complete upper flight deck and lots more. Though now an older release, reviewer Wisnu Prabowo finds it still has lots to offer FSX pilots.
