Bugs

The Commodore 64 version is bugged - seeing another plane in it is a rare occurrence.

Developer's message

The first Amiga disk (from the Activision release) contains the following message from the authors of the game to all potential crackers:

Hello Hacker, before you start ripping into this game please remember that you are destroying the Amiga and the jobs that are associated with it. We've spent over a year on this product and obviously want to make loads of money so if you do crack it (very easily, its THAT easy protection) then don't release it, Thank You.

Development

Because it would slow the game down too much, there is no collision detection on Mount Rushmore, and you can fly straight through it and not crash your plane.
