Before I saw it, I didn’t know that such a thing existed. I think that this would be an interesting subject as a scratch build in the future.

That’s where you want to mount your computer flight simulator.

Meikraft Models made a 1/72 model of this a long time ago, maybe in the 1970s. I have one running around somewhere, but have never built it. An English company currently makes one in 1/72, in resin, I think. I got a chance to try one out when I was in pilot training in 1976. They weren’t used anymore, but they kept one operating so we could appreciate the new simulators at the time. Our simulators then were primitive compared to the one’s today.

There is one of those in the Museum of Flight Restoration facility on Paine Field in Everett. I had the good fortune, and incredibly rewarding experience of working for Reflectone (Now CAE) Flight Simulator Company. They have come a LONG ways. The picture shows outside of a CAE simulator which other than markings is very much the same as what I worked on. The visual display is HD, when we built it, the Star Trek Enterprise front is where a Mylar mirror is vacuumed into a parabolic mirror to reflect the visual being projected overhead.
I was standing between the pilot and co-pilots position and when the pilot was banking over I instinctively leaned to counter. I almost fell over because we weren’t on motion, but my brain didn’t know it, it was that real.
I got to fly our South Korean Cobra helicopter simulator. The cockpit, and seat as well as the simulator itself are airconditioned. After 10 minutes of strafing runs before I crashed, I was dripping sweat, it was that intense.

I ‘flew’ er…. and… ‘crashed’ one of these as a junior cadet in the mid 1970’s, could not get to grips with it at all! @gblair.
Had no such trouble with the Blanik – thank goodness !
Tempus Fugit and all that….
Great clip Amari!
