    The ultimate in virtual reality: New simulator which gives fighter pilots a 360-degree view of the world

    A Belgian company has unveiled the ultimate fighter jet training tool: a fully immersive 360-degree flight simulator designed to reproduce reality exactly as a pilot sees it.

    It might not fit in the spare room though...
