Advertising BlurbsAdvertisement in COMPUTE, November 1990:
It goes without saying that a good flight simulator recreates, in perfect detail, the elements that make an aircraft what it is - elements such as flight characteristics, weaponry, and the ability to sustain damage. To do less would be an affront to simulation purists everywhere.
Red Baron takes the experience one step further by recreating not only the obvious details, but the flavor of the time. The humanity, the romance, the emotion that once filled the hearts of "those daring young men in their flying machines." It takes you backward in time to an age when aviation was in its infancy, and young pilots such as Eddie Rickenbacker, Billy Bishop and Manfred von Richthofen took to the air and invented the skills that would keep them alive. A time when fighter pilots of all nations formed a brotherhood that transcended allegiance. These men were the last true heroes - the legendary Aces.
Red Baron is more than a good flight simulator. It's an opportunity for you to discover what it was really like to be a fighting Ace in the war that launched aerial combat - World War I.

Red Baron takes you back to this bygone era, where you will experience the look, feel, and experience of aerial warfare in W.W.I. Engage in close-range dogfights, go balloon-busting to take out the aerial eyes of the enemy, take on Zepplins, escort bombers deep into enemy territory, go undercover in nighttime missions and go head-to-head with such famous Aces as the Red Baron himself!
