Boeing could not recreate the crash conditions on their flight simulator

Just read yesterday that the 737 MAX flight simulator at Ethiopian Airlines (they actually have one of the few in the world!) could not faithfully recreate the crash scenario that happened.

This shows that even the flight sim was NOT a full representation of reality.

A stark reminder that any theoretical modelling may be useful, but does not replace real-world testing.
