Speed Reading — Flight Simulator - Level 0 — 100 wpm 

This is the text (if you need help).

Microsoft's Flight Simulator now has all the world's airports. Gamers can take off from and land at 37,000 airports. These include international airports like New York's JFK, and landing strips in the middle of deserts or on top of mountains. Designers used satellite photos to make the airports look like the real airports.

The graphics are better in the new game. There are windsocks blowing in the wind and service trucks driving around. The runways are like the real runways. The lead designer said: "We decided to [use] real satellite pictures...and edit each airport manually." The result is that every airport is "a step closer to reality".
