Back in 1995 it was arguably the best flight sim for Mac. I find it much more interesting than F/A-18: somehow I prefer planes that hunt tanks rather than planes that hunt planes. But maybe it's just me. I find it really hard to say that it is still unplayable on a stock powerbook. Unlike F/A-18 Classic it runs fine on new iMac, though.
