FlightGear fun

How to die in Boeing 707, quick and easy. Take off, realize that you should set up fuel heating, select Help|, aim for checklists.. and hit auto startup/shutdown. Instantly lose all the engines. Fortunately, you are at 6000', so you start looking for the airport. Then you
realize "hmm, perhaps I can do the startup thing now", and hit the menu item once again. But instead of running engines, you get fire warnings on all the engines. That does not look good. Confirm fire, extinguish all four engines, and resume looking for airport in range. Trim for best glide. Then number 3 comes up. Then number 4. Number one and you know it will be easy. Number two as you fly over the runway... go around and do normal approach.
