Hackers 'destroy' flight sim site

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 site's founder, Tom Allensworth, said that the site would be down for the foreseeable future and was unsure "if we can come back at all".
