How well do you know Europe?

Cool little "virtual pilot" thing from Lufthansa.

See how close you can come to various European airports.

Lufthansa to Europe: Virtual Pilot!

My score was 26,186. I'm not proud of it.

I got 26,094 and I feel fairly good about it, as the average Amercian hardly knows where Europe is, or Turkey for that matter.

26,541 a couple thousand lower on my first attempt. I guess playing wargames about WWII for years has paid of.
