    who was not playing them totally straight all of the time would intentionally crash into things to see what would happen... and I seem to recall that before taking actual lessons how to take off in Jumbos at least some of the 9-11 plotters used the more accurate realistic flight sims to get some grounding and familiarity with flying a plane, flight deck etc.

    And well before Bin Laden gave the go ahead for the evil of 9-11 the idea must have popped into some heads along the way well to migrate the action into the real world... call it conjunction or convergence of similar ideas...
