Microsoft Flight Simulator 4 (V4.0)

Released in late 1989, version 4 brought several improvements over Microsoft Flight Simulator 3.

These included among others; improved aircraft models, as well as an upgraded model of the Cessna Skylane, programmable dynamic scenery (non-interactive air and ground traffic on and near airports moving along static prerecorded paths).

The initial version of the program did not support sound cards which where just entering the market, but three months later Microsoft releasd the Aircraft and Scenery addon which not only allowed users to edit aircraft and scenery, but also made provision for sound cards. The package also added for the first time, the Boeing 747-400 aircraft to Flight Simulator!
