Flight Simulator in Real Jet Nose

This cool amazing Flight Simulator was made by a Private Pilot named James Price, this guy has made an awesome DIY Flight Simulator out of a nose of 1969 Lufthansa Boeing 737-100. As an Avid Flight Sim Enthusiast this thing is really cool right? An Aviation experts say that Price, is one of only a handful of people in the world who have built their own flight simulator cockpit in an actual jet nose.

Price who works at Oakland Air Traffic Control Center as an air traffic controller. and a private pilot has began dreaming of building his own flight simulator 20 years ago when he joined an online group of people who build fake cockpits at home or use computer flight simulator programs.

He spent 12 years in constructing his dream Flight Simulator and it is one of the few flight simulators based in a real airplane shell. He dreamt of flying a jet as he had never flown one, began building mock cockpits and buying genuine Boeing 737 parts. To look like flying over the real world, he updated the instrumentation and turned it into most remarkable flight simulator until now.

The simulator was in the airport hangar since 2000, when he started the project and has been in his three car garage for three years now. He added three projection screens, seats, lights, dual controls, parts and instruments to make it function and look like a modern cockpit which cost him about $150,000 so far.
