Apple II game featuring bi-planes

I have a vague memory of a dogfight style game but that featured biplanes instead of jets. So not "Dogfight" the games. Maybe it was some other type of aerial combat. Ring any bells?

I remember Blue Max for the C64, but nothing for the Apple ][..

SubLOGIC Flight Simulator for Apple II included a bonus game entitled "British Ace" that was a bi-plane game. I think it used the flight simulator engine but in a purely fun action game format. Perhaps that's the one?

Now that brings back memories! Thanks.

I'm sure I remember a green screen 2D dogfight with biplanes though.

Sadly not, I'm sure it was 2D.
