Ah, the memories:

Forgot all about this toy. I remember having one of these when I was a kid. Maybe this is why I got into RC planes and helis.

Cool - I never realised there was a civilian version!

Over in the UK we had Flight Deck and Super Flight Deck. The twin engine plane was replaced by an RAF F4 Phantom and the runway was a carrier deck with flags which lifted up after landing. IIRC Super FLight Deck had a catapult and an arrestor wire which would pull up some kind of blast plate after you'd landed.

That looks like one of the coolest toys ever. If that was around in the early 90's I totally would have had one.

I LOVE MY EVO!!!
