Illustration for article titled Brave Man Turns Dead Aircraft Into Awesome Flight Simulator

James Price, an air traffic controller at Oakland airport, owns a flight simulator. Not a "buy a joystick and plug it into your computer" flight simulator.


A "chop the nose of an actual giant airplane and turn it into a flight simulator" type of flight simulator.

Price has, stuffed in his garage, the actual nose section of a Boeing 737. Formerly belonging to a complete aircraft as part of Lufthansa's fleet, Price has updated the instrumentation, added screens and transformed it into the most badass DIY flight sim I've ever seen.
