Nice... we actually made that web site here at Heavenspot. The site keeps going down because its getting crazy, crazy traffic...we (the client and us) completely underestimated the amount of hits the site would recieve(and we thought we were estimating high). We are working with he hosting company to get the site back up right now, so keep checking back. Make sure you play the fighter pilot game too!

ghettobird -

I live in Lakeridge (Woodbridge), work in Crystal City.

I know this because my son's scout troop is going that day to see the premier and ride the simulator. Some parents were needed so I got dragged in.

Darn the luck...:)

I am stationed in Germany, so getting this via a DVD would be fantastic! So I guess I may have to wait until it becomes available. :(

went to the press premier today and guys dvd on your small screen will not do this flik justice! go get yourself to an IMAX theater! I think they may have finally done it right or at least come alot closer than ever before (anyone remember that dreadful made for TV 'Red Flag'?)

Flying scenes are really great and much more 'tactical' than anything I've seen to date. Mind you it ain't perfect but its' a damn sight better than what's come before.

I don't think we have an IMAX within 4 hours of where I am. If they have one that will be hosting this that would be great.

Hey guys, saw the movie last night in saramento... it was good, but not great. I like the way they presented it and of course the footage was awesome... I think they could have done more with it, but overall id give it an 8/10! GO SEE IT!
