Following reports from various news sources relating to the possibilities of terrorists using flight simulator products to learn to fly planes, Microsoft has removed the WTC from its next instalment of its Flight Simulator.

The game has been delayed whilst programmers remove the buildings from the New York Skyline.

“We certainly want to do the right thing, and we're obviously as devastated as everyone else about this horrible tragedy,” said Microsoft spokesman Matt Pilla.

Microsoft is still to comment on the fact that several news agencies named the Microsoft Flight Simulator range in reports relating to how terrorists were able to successfully pilot large civilian aircraft.
