An airline is giving away, that is, for free, a full motion DC-10 simulator.

It's a Singer Link-Miles level B simulator build in 1977. It has full motion, and a level C precision, but needs level C graphic.

The simulator it self is ca. 14' x 14' (without the platform) and it's ca 14' high.

The Hydraulic pump is something smaller and runs on 480 volt.
Included are also 2 computer cupboards size ca 6'x 6' and 5' x 10'.

The sim is based in the USA and weighs in around 12 ton and herein lies the problems.

Taking it apart, transportation and rebuilding, is on one's own account.

More details (I don't have an English translation) are at http://www.flightsim.no/artikler/03012/

Somebody has said that Continental in Houston, Texas were due to get rid of theirs about now.

I dont know if this is the same one though.

Hee people,

I have contacted Continental Airlines and they replied very soon.

Their answer was that the sim is for free, but the moving cocts where about $30.000,- in the US.
So an international movement would be higher.

I am expecting more info and pics later this day.

Greetz,

Boyke
