Crazy in a Box

Slow news day over at the WSJ: Did you know there are lunatics out there who build whole airplane cockpits in their garage? Since this sort of quixotic wannabe stuff is right up my alley, I'm sure you'll be surprised to know I've actually given some serious thought to a rig like this. Having all the right controls is really expensive but otherwise very desirable. However, I've never thought creating an actual cockpit was all that great an idea, because it locks you into that specific airplane.

Nowadays I get my flying fix with something that can actually kill me, so this has all been pushed to a very far back burner.
