The simulators can be dangerous too ...

I once worked in the US with a pilot who had been invalided out and retrained in IT (courtesy of Uncle Sam) because the simulator he was flying simulated a bad landing on an aircraft carrier a bit *too* well, and broke his back.

Cue obvious arguments about how "real" a simulator should (or needs to) be.

Also interesting to see how the US military are looked after (or were in 1990).
