I was wondering about the GPS overcoming any lack of Nav skills
(reception in cockpit, etc).

I know nothing about flying planes, other than flight sim, but the thing
that struck me was that both planes were turning a circle into the
towers (one wing higher than other) and I would consider that much
harder than follow the straight line. How hard would hitting the side of
the Pentagon be? (45 degree descent apparently).
