I'll do without the full suite of physical sensations, especially hitting the ground, and engineering will doubtless prefer not having to do a structural check after each such exercise in a real a/c.

While a simulator scenario may not reproduce the precise sensations, there are still valuable lessons to be learned here.

Seems to me that it was blind adherence to automation gone mad. All the pilot had to do was to click off the FD and A/T and do a leisurely raw data go-around using basic ADI and manual throttle to a sensible body attitude. Nothing could be more safer or more simple. Unthinking reliance on automatics has killed more than one crew and passengers and frightened a few hundred more.
