"P51 Mustang Flight Simulator is set in the European Theatre of WWII, during the summer of 1944. You'll be flying out of Leiston field, piloting the most successful fighter of that era, the P51 'Mustang.' This simulation has very realistic flight characteristics and an unparalleled 'feeling' of flight. Shoot Touch 'n' Goes with another Mustang, strafe ground targets, buzz the Eiffel Tower, and dogfight with Germany's formidable Me109. Complete replay feature allows previous few minutes of action to be viewed from any of 13 camera angles. You can also connect two Mac's via cable and battle a friend. Fly the best. $69.95" --advertisement from Bullseye Software

This is version 2.90 from the "Simulator CD Pack" published in 1994. The documentation for that disc must have been on paper; there are no online docs provided. However, docs from the floppy version (same version number) have been found, scanned, and uploaded as the "manual" download.

Holy Mother McCree ....

Both Don Hill & Eric Parker are the KINGS of boxmac World War II flight simulators!

Do you know how LONG I've been looking for this?!?

Mac Treasures didn't even have it.

I even went to Donald's website.

Unfortunately, he left us a few years ago, so all apps have been closed.

Yay Macintosh Garden!

Thanks a lot! I never really used .dsk files.

@hunter13: If you drag this .dsk onto a Disk Copy 6.3 icon it will launch and mount the .dsk on your desktop. You can then drag the mounted disk to any location on your hard drive and its installed. If using emulators such as Mini vMac, you can also drag the .dsk into an emulators window to mount it as a separate drive (works with Mini vMac, not sure about the others) and run the game from the mounted drive.

I have no clue how to use the .dsk. I really want to check it out though.

Was able to get a couple of color screenshots on my trusty old Centris 660av, set to display 4 bit (16 colors), the only setting it accepts to display the game in color, it seems.

I know this supports at least 16 colors, but I can't seem to get a screenshot of it on my PB 540c. Hopefully someone with an emulator can take one and upload it.
