    According to this article;

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...tise-game.html

    The chilling echo of this week's real-life horror has already been practised by millions of people in homes and offices across the globe.
    Frankly, I was never that good with flight sims, maybe you aren't either. Not a crime.

    That article shows Microsoft saying what I implied above, it would help, but only to an already trained pilot they say.

    I flew simulators of all kind for over twenty years, thats why I posted. It isnt that easy and you have to train on a simulator for a long time in order to get proficient enough to navigate a heavy to a small target.

    I'm not implying anything by my post, but since I have done it for so long, I have always wonderd how they did it in such a short time, considering some couldnt even fly a single engine.

    I'm not sure, but I don't believe we know what the exact qualifications of the perps actually were. It is specualtion, but reasonable speculation I think to say that they were pilots. I mean, it's not like the muslim countries have no airlines or airline pilots.

    But, here's a youtube video (ironic, eh? ) of someone flying a 737 in to one of the towers using MS Flight Sim 2002.

    I can tell you that video looks easy, I can assure you it isnt. I bet whoever did that video didnt tell how many times he tried before he succeeded.

    Oh, I believe you, but just like I don't think we really know the qualifications of the perps, I don't believe we can speculate with any reasonable accuracy how long they may have trained for the attack.

    Politicians Glenn.... they only act like they care for their fellow americans because they need to do something to get reelected.

    Thats how it works..... the wealthy and affluent are the targets of the pols...... but there are not enough of them out to get the pols reelected....... so the pol has to feign compassion for the majority of americans and throw them a bone once in a while.

    The problem with being as open minded as liberals are is that your brains have a tendency to spill out.

    How am I misinformed ???

    Dont tell me you believe there was some big conspiracy to kill Kennedy.....

    Lee Harvey Oswald.......twisted individual decides to kill the prez and does it....... all by himself......

    Ruby.... upset that his favorite pres just got sent to hell by a would be commie.......kills the commie......

    Open and shut case in my opinion.....

    Of course I havent researched it much...... watched the zapruder film a few times on the net...... but nothing about the case really interests me.

    President whacked...... shocking.......yes...... but Id rather read a book on the history of metalurgy or medieval europe.
