    Pretty neat. Saves a lot of hours on the flight simulator.
    I would like to see how the front wheels are controlled from the cockpit.
    Looks like some kind of Gee and Haw situation.

    More than likely the cabin crew are sitting in the mock up cabin learning where the proper grid lines are for them to follow while communicating with the driver in the GMC truck this trainer looks like it was more about height and distance orientation than anything else you can ride the lines at ground level to learn them but they take on a whole new perspective when you are over 30 feet in the air
