    Stroll down memory lane

    So my dad never throws anything away, and he recently gave me a bunch of my old 3 1/2 inch floppy disks.
    I found a treasure trove of ancient flight simulators.

    A-10 Tank Killer
    Aces of the Pacific
    Aces over Europe
    Birds of Prey
    Chuck Yeagers Air Combat
    Comanche
    F-15 Stike Eagle
    LHX
    Nighthawk F-117A
    Red Baron

    So I tossed in A-10 Tank Killer, loaded it up in dosbox and to my great pleasure it worked just fine.

    Whaoooo, this list shows deep passion for flight sim from a long way off.
    I remember playing Commache with great satisfaction.

    Amazing collections that fires up old memories.

    I remember a lot of those, and think of them when somebody complains about some minor issue with graphics in DCS
    I played A-10 Tank Killer a bit, found it back in the day in a discount bin at a local computer store. But by the time I found it, there were games like Air Warrior with much better graphics, etc. and I was big into the old war birds at the time. I guess it was my first foray into the A-10 and jets though. I still have my Jane's WW2 series tucked away somewhere.
    I only recently cleared out a bunch of old games, and am still hanging on to a few for nostalgia, like Jane's and my Warbirds Disc. It's nice to revisit old memories now and then, and get a fresh perspective on how far the genre has come. I don't think I will ever do the work to get them running on win10, just not enough hours in the day.
    The rumors of my demise are premature. Ok, I've died twice but I keep coming back, I'm worse than a stray cat!
