You're mad to think you'll get it in time for Christmas, and they don't make it any more so won't find it in stores.

And the amazon one is in stock at £10.99 but the one above is the gold edition which comes with the acceleration pack, well worth it.

More realistic but less fun and graphics not the greatest oh and that £15 doesn't cover the map packs which are really expensive.

wow cheers, nice to know, but FSX still won't go full detail on my computer. Think I need to get a 1GB graphics card in time for MS Flight then
