DonsGames have released a Cocoa version of its popular flying game, Skyfighters 1945. According to the developers this version is a near complete rewrite of the code from the previous classic versions. Several additions include more realistic flight from the planes, better smoke and cloud effects and a new mission builder. The mission builder allows players to create new worlds for people to fly within, with everything from building locations to start positions customizable.

Here's a rundown from the main site:

New in this program are better flying aircraft, better looking clouds and smoke effects, larger textures, new worlds, and the w/MB part. What does "w/MB" stand for? "with Mission Builder". This new incarnation of SF1945 is designed around a Mission Builder, allowing you to design and create your own missions. Starting with a toolkit of worlds, objects, and aircraft, you can easily set the world to use, add objects like buildings, ground vehicles, targets, set where each aircraft begins the mission, and finally set up the victory conditions for your mission. Trade missions you create with other users of OSX SkyFighters 1945 wMB. Check the top of the right hand column of this page for featured user created missions.
The free 8MB demo version is available at Macgamefiles.com and a more detailed description is available at the link below.
