Anyone care to enlighten the folks in the states about the game?  Was it popular in Europe or Brazil?  Any tips to getting a better score?

Together with Comando Noturno and "Bombardeio Submarino" (VP 16), it was the last games released here, so it was not so popular. I just had a chance to play it 8 years ago more or less, but I don?t like it much. As fly simulator Comando Noturno is a better option beside some bugs.

In Europe it was one of the last Videopac games released here too (Videopac 58), so it's quite rare.
The cartridge contains extra bank-switch hardware, because it's a 12k game.

Since there are quite a number of differences between the Brazilian version, the release European version and the European prototype version, I wonder which version you guys find more difficult to play?

I can?t remember much of Euro prototype version. I think in the air all version are the same. The brazilian, I think is most difficulty because is needed to control the landing and take-off moving the joystick left or rigth. I just don?t know why the brazilian version made some graphics changes, since the euro version, with rear-view  mirror (in apropiate size) and bars to indicate ammunition and fuel looks much better.
