9/11 is nearing

Recommended Posts

As 9/11 nears and the opening of the memorial on ground zero, I can't help but mourn. Even though I was many miles away I still have a broken heart from it all. But I post this in regards to the Boeing 767 and 757 released by PMDG a little more than a year before the attacks. As I was reading articles on how the terrorists trained for this, I had remembered these products had been released and found this review by Flightsim.com http://www.flightsim.com/main/review/pmdg.htm Has PMDG ever traced any purchases made that could relate to the attacks? I am not bashing nor saying pmdg did something wrong, for those that most likely will come and derail the thread, i'm saying its a possibility that the product was used in the Flight Simulator training the terrorists used. Just a consideration.

I don't believe this is something appropriate to be talking about. It is pure speculation as there is no way PMDG is going to comment on something as crazy as this. Sure its a possibility, but its 100% useless to be talking about. Remy Patrizia

Sorry Bob, but this is really bad taste and serves no purpose. What exactly are you trying to achieve here?

Before this gets locked and deleted - I'll jump in, there was lots of speculation about their "training" but the only concrete evidence was the flight school they attendended - anything else is pointless speculation.

I only read about the flight school, nothing else. It said they pulled out of the course when it came to the landing, probably because they had no intention of doing it and then felt they knew all they needed. Their are subtle changes between a virtual flight sim and a real life plane and thats not even counting the theorettical and book learning side of it. Enough that a flight simulator on its own would not be sufficient material to cover all systems and procedures. Linking or attempted linking of any one software producer and/or supplier with an atrocity of this kind is not very nice at all. I do consider this post as sensationalism and conjecture, in rather bad taste too so this is my final post in it and I hope too it gets locked.
