Man installs Boeing 747 in his bedroom


John Davis will fly over the Alpine mountains, cross the Atlantic Ocean and navigate his way over the sand dunes of the Sahara, in his very own flight simulator.

What started as a flight of fancy has turned into a hobby of jumbo proportions after the 50-year-old built an £18,000 Boeing 747-400 simulator in his spare bedroom.

‘I’ve always been interested in planes and I dreamt of becoming a pilot from a very young age – but I was never any good at maths, so this is the next best thing,’ said Mr Davis, from Coventry.

He and eight ‘crew’ plan to fly around the world to raise money for Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.
