On Microsoft Flight Simulator’s related news, a modder has added the ship blockage of the Suez Canal on the simulator, players are now able to flight above the canal and see the situation.

The faithful representation of the disaster was posted on TikTok by the user, donut_enforcement. In the short video, the user makes an “announcement” as the plane’s pilot, stating that the passengers should buckle up as they’re about to go down for a flyby in the Suez Canal to take a glimpse at the disaster.

The meme video built on Microsoft Flight Simulator was noticed and tweeted by Mat Velloso, a technical advisor of Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella. Nadella makes some harmless jokes about the serious situation and encourages users to keep making viral videos and mods for the game.
