  1. Created with one thing in mind - absolute realism, right down to the 150 page manual. A top-notch add-on for "FS2K4."

    The good news is that that audience will absolutely love the attention to detail and the phenomenal level of accuracy in the plane and flight modeling.
  3. Wings of Power may just seem like a plane add-on for Flight Simulator 2004, but it's definitely commercial-quality software: It lets you experience the closest thing to actually flying a colorful collection of World War II-era aircraft.

    Hardcore fans will be enthralled by the (optional) authentic engine-management procedures necessary to keep each of these magnificent machines airborne. Also, in a cool departure from current industry practice, an honest-to-goodness 155-page printed manual is actually included in the box. [Dec 2004, p.102]

    It's hours and hours of challenging flying; a must for fans of WWII planes or armchair aviators looking for something new and special.
