"The heart of the program is an awesome database that illustration hundreds of aircraft - some so obscure that even hard-core aviation buffs are unlikely to have ever seen pictures of them. The amount of research packed into this disc is staggering - it traces every aircraft from the drawing board to its final modification, and it provides a detailed synopsis of each plane's combat record"
