    Police investigating flight simulator links to 7th July bombings

    Yes, that title does sound rather ridiculous doesn't it. Why on earth would a man who intended to blow himself up on a train use flight simulators for the purposes of carrying out a terrorist act on a plane? Surely the police aren't scare mongering, yet again? This article from This is London:

    Police are investigating whether one of the July 7 suicide bombers obsessively used flight simulators to practise flying passenger planes. Germaine Lindsay is listed as a "pilot" with a web-based group of flying enthusiasts who operate virtual copies of genuine airline schedules.

    Maybe a flying mission was his top wish ?
    If he played a lot online it might be useful to see his team mates, if any.

    A flying mission may well have been his top wish, however, quite obviously it's not the case that he was training for some sort of terrorist attack, that is of course, if you believe the line on these men intending to blow themselves up.
