LXer: Open Source, scavenged hardware, powers life-sized 747 simulator

Published at LXer:

Retired Air Force pilot John Wojnaroski can’t seem to get away from flying and he’s been constructing the “ultimate” flight simulator with authentic screens, switches and even throttle controls. Using scavenged passenger jet parts and the “FlightGear” open source simulator platform, Wojnaroski’s simulator can emulate most jumbo jets and can even perform instrument approaches along with around the world flights.
