Visit From An Old Flightsim Friend
Most of us get to know a variety of people through flightsimming. We've had many people come and go during all the years we've been running FlightSim.Com. Back around 1999 to 2001 a fellow named Bruno Barreiros was part of the team here, helping us with the news that we published.
