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.
