Description: First announced in a March 1983 press release. It was originally planned to be a cassette game for Amiga's Power Module peripheral (with part #2105) and intended for use with The Joyboard controller. It was later planned to be 1 of 4 games on Power-Play Arcade cart #5. According to a company press release, this title was to be a 1st-person flying simulation with a true "through the cockpit" viewpoint (which it wasn't) and featuring land and sea game variations. Both NTSC and PAL prototype versions have been found and the game appears to be complete. Catalog description: "You're guiding your plane through a routine surveillance mission when suddenly, you're surrounded by enemy bombers and fighters. But they've seen you first. And you'd better think fast. You squeeze off a few rounds, just to let them know it isn't going to be easy. You pull back hard on the stick, and head straight for the sky. It's not going to be easy for you either..." Discovered by Scott Stilphen in 2007 - 100 boxed (and numbered) copies were sold in 2010 under agreement with Jerry Lawson for $30 each. Price and scarcity reflect the original prototype, not the reproduction.
