I found this on F19 homepage..

A rare piece of aviation history has been uncovered by staff working on the new Edinburgh tram system.

A flight simulator dating back more than 50 years has been found in a hut in the Saughton area... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

There is something similar to that onboard the USS Lexington. I can't remember exactly how similar the two are, I just remember it's painted blue and looks to be about that shape. (It's a bit smaller though, if I remember correctly)

Not sure if it was an actual trainer, or maybe just a scaled replica or what. But it looked old and simple enough to be a WWII simulator. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif
