I mentioned to someone else that that 747-400 simulator is, umm, "famous",


"Moussaoui allegedly received US$14,000 in wire transfers from bin al-Shibh, originating fromDüsseldorf and Hamburg, Germany, in early August. This money could have helped him pay for flight training about two weeks later at Pan-Am International Flight Academy in Eagan, Minnesota. On August 13, Moussaoui paid US$6,800 with US$100 bills to receive training in a 747-400simulator. The simulator that Pan-Am uses is operated by Northwest Aerospace Training Corporation (NATCO), a training facility affiliated with Northwest Airlines. "
