PCGameworld has a great preview of Combat Flight Sim 3.
"You hear bombs crashing into the ground somewhere nearby. Bullets may start hitting what you thought was a static shot of a plane. You haven't even named your pilot and you're already hearing the great sound effects of CFS3. The aircraft might even start smoking and catch on fire, all while you're dilly dallying in setting up the fun via the menus. The first time this happened I panicked, thinking that the plane being turned into Swiss cheese flambÃ© right in front of my menu clicking eyes was going to be the same plane that I had to fly."
