Well this certainly isn't your ordinary weekend project.  Air traffic controller and private pilot James Price has built a flight simulator out of the nose of a 1969 Boeing 737 in his Pleasanton garage.

He has been working on it as a hobby since 2000.  James  has spent 12 years of free time converting the nose of a Boeing 737 into a full-on flight simulator in his California garage. Price did all of the simulator’s programming himself, and about 90 percent of the gauges and displays in the cockpit actually function. Price is one of only several in the U.S. to own and operate such a device.
