California Man Makes Worlds Greatest Flight Sim In Garage
Sure, we’ve all dreamed of building a genuine cabinet arcade in our garages, or some similarly awesome home video game system beyond what our consoles and PCs are capable of providing aesthetically. Set those dreams aside, everyone, because you’ll never measure up to James Price of Pleasanton, California. After three years of hard work and spending what must have been an obscene amount of money, Price has officially created the world’s most impressive flight simulator.
The lengths to which he went are astounding. He actually purchased a derelict Lufthansa fleet Boeing 737, presumably with his own money. After some time spent keeping the plane in a hanger in nearby Livermore, he finally took the entire nose and cockpit section, gutted it, and put it in his garage. Authentic Boeing parts were added, and finally a very accurate visual simulator installed (all the cockpit’s windows are screens), and as he puts it, he can ‘fly anywhere in the world’.
