The former headquarters of Northwest Airlines in Eagan is set to be demolished to make room for the Minnesota Vikings' new headquarters, so everything inside is up for auction.

And some of the most unique things being auctioned off next week are the flight simulators.

There are nine of them that pilots for Northwest Airlines (and then Delta Air Lines after it acquired NWA back in 2008) trained on, including simulators for Boeing 747s, Boeing 757s and DC-9s.

You could own one of these simulators for pretty cheap, too. Since the building is being torn down, everything must go, regardless of the price – and some of the simulators haven't even been bid on yet, while others have a high bid of just $120.

The other items being auctioned off include: overhead cranes, air conditioners, cafeteria equipment, tools, HVAC systems, office equipment and furniture, electrical boxes, transformers, building salvage (doors, elevators, signs), and more.

You can click through photos of some of the items up for auction below.

If you want to bid

Because there's so much stuff that has to go, the items will be closed out over two days next week.

The flight simulators will be included in the Oct. 13 auction, when 10 items will close out every 3 minutes starting at 10:30 a.m. You can browse all the items in this auction – and place initial bids – online here.

The next day, items including building savage and electrical boxes will close out at a rate of three items every 2 minutes, starting at 10:30 a.m. Oct. 14. You can browse those items, and place initial bids, online here.

If you want to check out the items in person, the former training center will be open to the public from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, Grafe Auction Company says. The training center is located at 2600 Lone Oak Point in Eagan.
