“Negative, Ghostrider, the pattern is full.”

I broke down a few days ago and finally bought Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 (since CompUSA didn’t have any copies of X-Plane in stock) and dug the Saitek ST90 joystick out of the closet.

Instead of going for a combat simulator, I went for the realism angle and am going through all of the tutorials. So far I can take off and fly around in a Cessna, I haven’t tried landing yet…

I’d love a Thrustmaster HOTAS Cougar, but can’t afford or justify $300 for a joystick.

  1. One of the reasons I’m furious with Mayor Daley for closing Meigs Field is that now I can’t land there with my wife, and just before touching down say “You know, every time I tried this is MSFS, I crashed.” It’s true – I’ve never managed to land in MSFS, and yet I’ve landed a real airplane hundreds of times.

  2. OMG! He can take off but not land! He must be a TERRRRRRRST!!!!!1!!
