I haven't play this one but if like flight sims you'll love Flight Simulator
2002 by micro$oft. Best flight sim ever made (and I'm not, by all means,
great fan of MS) with very advanced options of creating and redesigning
planes (although it requires some 3d modeling and programing skills). And of
course whole world to fly around.
