Thanks for a great article Migs!

Longbow 1 and 2 were among my all-time favorite games, although I preferred the dynamic campaign that came with Longbow 2. The manuals alone were worth the price of admission...like all Janes manuals!

Are you going to do a Classic Lookback on Janes's F-15?

Great article Migs. Never played the games but always wanted to see what they were like. Now I know.
