Aging Veteran Pilots Can Virtually Take To The Air Again

In a rather heartwarming story, seniors and veterans in assisted living facilities have been able to virtually fly using a flight simulator setup, and in some cases using the Oculus Rift virtual reality technology, for that extra "you are there" experience. The person providing this unusual and creative experience is Reddit user jwsimmons.

jwsimmons says that all of the planes used during the assisted living demonstrations have been disarmed, so there's no combat. "Wanted to keep it all positive," jwsimmons writes. "They'd fly and reminisce."
