Blue Lightning

Flight Command chose you to fly the top secret Blue Lightning combat jet on its first flight. You finished last at flight school so you have nothing to lose.

Trails of smoke warn of oncoming enemy missiles. A few quick barrel rolls and you avoid the missiles. now here come the jets!

With guns blazing you fly into the thick of the enemy formation.

If you can somehow complete nine crucial missions which combine the explosive action of combat with the quiet stealth of night flight, you'll be a hero. If you fail, no one will even remember your name.

Note: This Japanese variant of Blue Lightning came in a 'big box' and had a colour Japanese language manual.
