Read this in the local newspaper today. I find it quite amusing.
"Russia's national carrier Aeroflot and Moscow's main airport set out to prove that they were prepared for the Y2K computer bug by putting groups of journalists on simulated millennial night flights.
The simulators-which resemble mechanical spiders (?) on the outside but look and feel like a real cockpit inside-reared up and circled over illusory, densely populated cities while, presumably, crowds below popped chanpagne corks and cheered in the new year.
All went well, until the last flight. Several reporters were virtually killed over Miami when their simulated Aeroflot Airbus A320 crashed at 30 seconds past midnight on January 1, 2000.
Aeroflot officials quickly explained the mishap was due to a power cut affecting the whole building and not the millenium bug."
Hmmmmmmm, i certaintly wouldn't wanna be flying Aeroflot on New Years. Actually, I wouldn't wanna fly Aeroflot at all.
