Car analogy

"...you could program it so the car would feel the same to drive as it did with the original engine and wheels."

Maybe I or we could but it appears to me no company can, the best they can do is the feeling of a video game.

Increasingly technology is being used to remove the connection between the operator, equipment and the real world because most buyers are not operators and most operators find it too difficult to fly, or in the case of cars drive, without technology between them and the equipment.

Of course while one can manually (with powered hydraulics) fly a 737 that isn't the case with more modern designs some of which are so good they are IMO well worth dying for now and then.
