    Hell, StarFox probably had better graphics. I was damn good in that game back in my Super Nintendo days.

    In one of those early versions wou had 4 or 5 colors, with black and white being two of them. Some may long for the good old days but not when it comes to flight sims.

    This is probably the version you are talking about. It is version 2. There is some pretty interesting reading on the back of the box. Back in the day I thought this was the most incredible thing. My how times have changed.

    Someone gave me a floppy disc with MS FS 1 in 1985, which I played on a true IBM PC at my workplace. I then obtained Version 2 later on...

    I was hooked on flight simulation from then on. Bought every version of MSFS up to FSX (except FS95). Even bought IFLY and Flight Unlmited.

    But, still hairy to land in Catalina Island to this day!

    I'm gonna have to do a video of this. What plane? It shouldn't be hard at all in a slow and small Cessna. I've landed a F22 there and I may have used a PMDG 737-600 as well.

    The only hard part about that runway is its length. And that's common for any small length runway. There's one at the Peace Gardens on the border with Canada and North Dakota and I landed my F22 there. Albeit, I had to stay on the brakes all the way to the end.
