The San Jose Mercury News posted a video about air traffic controller and pilot James Price, who converted the nosecone and cockpit of a 1967 Boeing 737 into his own DIY flight simulator. Built in his garage over the course of three years, 90% of the Lufthansa 737′s systems are working and James even retrofitted the cockpit with modern instruments. He says, “I like the technical aspect of it. Not only flying a simulator, but building the systems, programming the software, making it all work.” [via Kyle Wiens]
