A Tarot Airport Has been built, and planes have been invented shortly thereafter, and so the stage has been set for the second leg of our airborne adventure. Rather than slip back into the comfort of Microsoft's shiny flight simulator, we're going to indulge in a bit of the rough stuff with X-Plane. Where Bill Gates prefers to imbue entire aircraft with their researched properties Such as lift and drag, X-Plane computes all of this science on the fly for individual wing segments, meaning (in theory at least) that it's a far more accurate simulation of flight and one that can be adapted to easily include a wider variety of aircraft. We could've chosen anything for this leg, from the space shuttle to the Concorde, or an inoffensive bi-plane.
So we fly out of Israel in the Hindenburg, a giant symbol of Nazi oppression. This involves installing three DVDs' worth of global scenery and suspending your disbelief that such a journey is even possible, given the slowness of a Zeppelin and the likelihood of being justifiably shot down.
