Red Baron 3D (RB3D) from Dynamix/Sierra is a WW1 aerial combat flight simulator focusing on an era when men were made of steel and planes were made of canvas and wood! Red Baron 3D was originally released in 1998 and  included 3Dfx graphics as the major improvement over previous versions. It is still considered to be the best WW1 flight sim ever made. In addition to an amazing dynamic campaign function in single player (SP) mode, multiplayer online flying (MMP) is well supported in Red Baron 3D. You can play in a LAN or on the internet free of charge. You can either join in on a public server or start your own server using the free MMP server software.

The most attractive thing with Red Baron 3D is the active player's community that still produces amazing patches and enhancements after all these years. There is still a number of active players who play RB3D online, and you can find many public servers offering different game play scenarios.
