MICROSOFT FLIGHT SIMULATOR 2004 AT SUN 'N FUN, FLORIDA

Continuing the countdown to kittyhawk, this years Sun ‘n Fun exhibition provides visitors the opportunity to relive history and take control of the Wright Flyer – albeit in a virtual sense.

On December 17th at 10.35am a full size Wright Flyer replica will take to the skies at Kittyhawk, North Carolina to recreate that famous first flight flown exactly 100 years earlier, but those visiting Sun, n Fun this year, can try out Microsoft’s virtual Wright Flyer, and experience how difficult it really was to fly such a machine.

New aircraft in FS2004 will include those that took aviation development forward through the decades, aircraft such as the Ryan NYP -  flown by Charles Lindbergh, the Vickers Vimy, Ford Tri-Motor and the DC-3 Dakota.
