Flight simulator site Avsim has been "destroyed" by malicious hackers.
The site, which launched in 1996, covered all aspects of flight
simulation, although its main focus was on Microsoft's Flight Simulator.
The attack took down the site's two servers and the owners had not
established an external backup system.
The site's founder, Tom Allensworth, said that the site would be down
for the foreseeable future and was unsure if would ever go back up.
