( Daphne ) Laserdisc MPEG: Mach 3 + Mach 3 [resized]

"In M.A.C.H. 3, you pilot either a "Fighter" plane or a "Bomber" plane and must fly around hitting targets on the ground or in the air while avoiding enemy fire. M.A.C.H. 3 used video footage from the laser disc and overlaid computer graphics for your ship and the enemy ships.

In order to record the video footage for the game, a specially designed plane was used that had cameras mounted on the nose and in the belly. To keep the video from the laser disc player and computer graphics in sync, target data had to be entered by hand one frame at a time on the right audio track of the laser disc. This was a very time consuming process but was worth the effort, as M.A.C.H. 3 was one of the most successful laser disc games of all time." (Dragon's Lair Project)
