There has clearly been a huge and very welcome surge in interest in flight simulation since last week's events in New York.

Today we enjoyed hosting a News team from BBC's Look East programme, who were keen to find out more about the world of flight simulation. Martyn once again took the controls, this time for a landing at Luton and a look over Duxford in the B-17 ' http://www.justflight.com/product.asp?pid=13 - Memphis Belle ', and Alex and Richard were also interviewed about flight simulation and our business here at Just Flight.

If the News feature brings some new recruits to the world of desktop flying, we'll consider it a job well done. The fact that the mainstream media have shown an interest in our hobby - for all the right reasons - can only be a good thing.

The News feature will be broadcast on BBC1 between 6.30pm and 7.30pm tonight.

Would love to see it, but unfortunately it's on the regional broadcast and we only get BBC London Unhappy
 
Sounds good though!

Yeah! Unfortunately I - along with a lot of other people in this area - use Virgin Media cable TV services. We have the V+ package, which offers pretty much the same as Sky+, except being able to view different regions!!
