A return to flight

Age of Empires goes online

The teaser video for Microsoft Flight doesn't tell much about how the program will work.

It starts with a young woman's voice saying "When I was a child, I dreamed I could fly." A plane then zooms through the screen and off into the horizon, before a link is shown to Microsoft's Web site.
