I learned what you are talking about flying the sim at AA. I was amazed at just how well it flew by the numbers when making approaches. I also tried some of the fly out of the sky stuff <G>... Lots of fun.

I was able to see one from the jumpseat one wonderful day going into Denver <G>. We were motoring along level with a PD decent. It was a very hazy day and you couldn't see much forward. Capt. was doing the briefing and talking about the next leg... I happened to look down and ask gee, is that Buckley down there???? <BG> Capt. looks down and says yup, CRAP! Watched power come off and start down. A few minutes later, get DEN in sight and approach clears us for a visual, but also asks if we are going to make it down in time <G>... Capt. says yes and turns to F/O and says, yeah you are gonna make it right???? F/O slows it up a bit and does the wing disappearing act <G>.... Capt. turns to me and says, ahhhh you didn't see the flaps and spoilers actually do that <G>... We made it... It was a fun trip...
