Something that I thought the folks here would appreciate: a fellow in Dubai is trying to keep a full-motion Boeing 737-300 sim (from 1991) running.
The main host machine is a Sun/3E, connected over Ethernet to the operator workstation which has 2 Sun/3Es each with a cgtwo powering a CRT touch screen. One of the Sun VME SCSI/Ethernet boards died, and he’s been unable to find a (working) replacement board.

There’s also a big rack of Concurrent hardware running OS/32, and some newer PCs for visuals and TCAS.

Plenty of pictures and a video tour of all the hardware at:
