Some people may be satisfied with playing games on a console or PC to achieve their dreams of flying a Boeing 737-100 jet, but California resident James Price decided to take things to the next level by building his own mind-blowing $150,000 flight simulator using parts from an actual plane.
Inhabitat reports: “Price started with a 1969 Lufthansa Boeing 737-100 and began work on the plane in a hangar at the Livermore Airport 12 years ago. Amazingly, the craft works just like a real airplane, with Boeing pedals, lights, switches and the same systems and software that a real jet uses. Three screens sit ahead of the plane window, providing visuals that can be programmed to any location in the world to simulate the same flight path. The whole thing even vibrates!”
