Interesting video.  Wings from Cinemaware is being updated and will be released to a number of platforms.  :)

I thought it was a bit strange that the original Red Baron coin-op by Atari didn't get a bigger mention in this video, surely it was the very first WW1 based video game?

The one really notable omission for me though was the excellent Warbirds on the Atari Lynx:

Those two are definitely WWI games and good ones, at that.  Good call, Laird!
