    Video cameras in the nose of the plane now for neat landing sequences to be displayed at each seat?
    NEAT!

    Yeah it's not a flight simulator, it's the real thing!

    Very cool, Dave ... the best I could do on Croatian Air's flight from Split to Dubrovnik was to hold the video camera to the window for the 20 minute flight!

    American Airlines had that in the late 1970s. It was really cool. They stopped after flight 191 crashed and perhaps people on board got to see what was happening.

    I believe flight 191 ended the use of cameras here as a result of suits filed by the families of the people who perished. The suits added extra pain and suffering because the people who died could watch and know their impending doom.

    Yeah, they had these on the Trans-Atlantic flight I went on (Charles-de-Gaulle to Montreal),
