Nestled in the captain's seat of a Boeing 777, you get a chill up your spine. It is dark outside - inky black, in fact I'm at FlightCity in Jandakot, Australia's only Boeing 777 simulator. It's as real as it gets without flying the real thing. I am about to fly the same route as MH370.
The cockpit is the exact replica and I have a former 777 captain as my co-pilot.
