In the news today in the USA...
The man who stole a plane said he didn't need much help...  " I have played some video games"

- https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-45157596

Remember guys and gals, flying in a video game, even like this IL2-1946+Mods,  is not like things in real life flying.
So be cool and be safe.

Stick to playing video-games and enjoy your life ...  donĀ“t kill yourself (or others) doing these stupid stunts !   ;)

Everything I like is either illegal, immoral or fattening ! Welcome to SAS1946

19 years ago, similar hijack was in my memory.

In Japan, On July 23, 1999,
All Nippon Airways --- Domestic Flight 61 (503 passengers and 14 crew members on board, Boeing 747) was hijacked by a flight simulator player ......


So, the opinion max_thehitman wrote is agreed by me.

I feel bad for the guy, but it is really a problem with many people... Kinda wish I could have been there to talk him out of it or at least tried.

It was a suicide flight and he was spending the bit of time screwing around and doing some stunts before he decided to end himself. Guess it was one of those, "Oh hey, may as well pull a loop or fuck around" moments.
