In the weekend of April 16 and 17, 2005 a new Dutch
Flight Simulator Weekend will be organized at the National Aviation Theme
Aviodrome at Lelystad Airport. This years theme is DESIGN:
Aircraft, Panels, Repaints, Scenery etc. FS History
and The Old FS Vault will be there
too! With a new video about the development of
Flight Simulator over the past 25 years, new posters of most old
versions and the possibility to (try to) play many of the old versions on a current
Pentium. We hope to see you too!
If you want to know more about previous Dutch Flight
Simulator Events, please visit the pages about

The Netherlands. With reports of all previous events (starting ca.
participating organisations (FSFAN, DFSO, FSGG, ...) and persons. Most pages in Dutch, but
the pictures speak all languages. Some pages (e.g. about FSFAN) in English.

A small facelift for the Old FS Vault, adding a new logo on top and
correcting a few errors that had accumulated. Corrected the links to the
Flight Simulator History website
to reflect the new domain on simFlight. Changed the link to the second concept of our FS History video (see
Introduction page). A complete version of this video, including FS2002 and
hopefully be ready before mid April.

Added black and white MSFS 1.0 for the (old) Macintosh
a small and elegant package with the MinivMac emulator. Thanks to Davide
Rovagnati from Italy and Hubert Born form Germany. The later MS FS 4.0 for
the (new) Macintosh (1991) will hopefully follow soon.

MSFS 5.0a has been added in 2 versions: a one-to-one copy of the
original floppies and a version together with the DOSbox PC-emulator which
enables you to rum it under Windows XP. Some new docs and reference material has
been added. I am still working on some more downloads, including better versions for the Commodore 64, Atari ST and Amiga.

In the meantime several new old versions have been added:
MSFS 3.0, MSFS 4.0 and FS II - MSX.
For other versions some new docs and reference material has
been added. I am working on some more downloads, including the
versions for the Commodore 64, Atari ST and Amiga.

The first and latest news is that the first draft of this
website has finally gone public. With quite a few downloads of
the old versions, starting with the early versions for the
Apple II (1979) and TR-80 (1980). And with quite a lot of docs
and reference material. Hope you like it. If there are any new
facts or download, they will be mentioned here.
And let me know if something
important is missing:
