Video: We check out the Breitling flight simulator in Canary Wharf

Ever flown a fighter jet? No? Us neither, but we've had a go on a fighter jet flight simulator as of today.

Uber swanky watch brand Breitling set up the simulator in Canada Square shopping centre, Canary Wharf in a bid to encourage bankers and other Canary Wharf-ite's to battle against each other for the fastest time - with the winner taking a trip in a real jet with the Breitling team in Dijon.

The Capitalist headed down there to have a go and see how the "battle of the banks" was going. We bumped into Simon Patston of HSBC has he exited the machine, vowing to go back and get a faster time tomorrow.
