IL-2 Battle of Bodenplatte Sale ➶

Good news for fans of flying digitally simulated airplanes in computers: This weekend you can buy my favorite propeller aeroplane flight simulator for $79.99 $19.99 (premium edition that includes the P-38 and FW-190 collector planes), or $49.99 $12.49 for the regular edition with P-51D, P-47D, Tempest, and so on, as long as you buy it from the developers’ website (on Steam there is no discount and you need to own Stalingrad to play Bodenplatte — not sure why).

Here is the Stormbirds review of the game and a podcast interview with IL-2 producer Jason Williams, who has a long history with flight sims. And here is a recent post on Reddit with good information about this special video game and its community.
