...from The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Monday June 15, 1987 FLIGHT TO KREMLIN NOW A VIDEO GAME PARIS (AP) --Video game fans can now replay the flight of Mathias Rust across Soviet territory to Moscow's Red Square. A French company, Hitech Productions, said Saturday that its new game, "Cessna over Moscow," was available on cassette or disk. Players "must, of course, stick close to the terrain to escape radar detection," a company statement says. "The objective is to reach Moscow, but to score more points, he can drop leaflets over towns. He must also discover air corridors free from surveillance." Rust, 19, of Hamburg, West Germany, has been in prison in Moscow since his landing on May 28 of a Cessna in Red Square. He has not been charged with a crime. Rust violated heavily guarded Soviet airspace on his flight from Helsinki, Finland.
