Description

Beginning in 1986, SubLOGIC, developers of the original Flight Simulator Series, released "Scenery Disks" which added airports, buildings, and landscape to regions outside the basic ones. In 1990, they re-released the disks in sets.

"Set B" includes: Scenery Disk #9 (expanded Chicago area, St. Louis, Cincinnati), Scenery Disk #12 (expanded New York area, Montreal, Halifax), and Hawaiian Odyssey (which included a treasure hunt across the islands, as well as "Experimental Scenery") (see Trivia for more).

This set works with all the original SubLOGIC-developed flight simulations, including Microsoft Flight Simulator versions 1-4, Sublogic Jet, and Flight Assignment: ATP.

The box cover was identical for all Scenery Collection sets, except for the gold sticker on the upper left.
