From a comment made by ampharos, there is all kinds of weird stuff on the old Microsoft FTP server, including all kinds of stuff in the stress test directory.. So wandering around I came across something I never noticed, Flight Simulator 4!
That’s right and for MS-DOS. I recall running this on OS/2 2.0 was kind of a big deal, but its cooler in dosbox! … Anyways, if you want click here, and download away. I think this version was intended to more of a demo, but it’s still cool to watch the jet plane going through the motions.
What is amazing to me is just how compact it is… It seems there was a lot ‘more’ with less back then, but maybe we’ve come to expect so much more?
