evansb is right, it is indeed the SNCASO SO-9000 Trident

some information in English on the EADS website
it has to be corrected though, as the Trident was not designed as a fighter but as an interceptor
detailed information (in French)



evansb, you have control

Thanks! Here is the next What Cockpit? Only 16 were built. This restored example is airworthy.

Attention Gents!..and Ppruners as well. I am going on vacation tomorrow, so a correct response to my latest 'What Cockpit?' would be appreciated.

Has this craft been made into a trainer but had originally had a rear facing gunner?
Was it a naval aircraft?

Interesting. A British Manufacturered Fire Extinguisher but I do not think the aircraft is British. Fairly low upper mainplane. I think this aircraft is the Caproni Ca.113

Not military. Not British, not Italian. The aircraft established an historic first for its type in it's country of origin.

Could it be the Buhl-Verville Airster two-seat biplane, "first civil aircraft to be certificated in U.S "?
I have trouble finding pics clearly identifying it, though

It is American, but not the Buhl-Verville. The mystery aircraft first flew in 1926.

It must be the Ryan M-1.The Ryan M-1 was the first monoplane produced in series in America, inspired from the Wright-Bellanca WB-1. It was designed by T.Claude Ryan, and calculated and drafted by Bill Waterhouse. The first flight of the type took place on February 14, 1926 from Dutch Flats, California, USA.

You are correct, Mel. The Ryan M-1 in the cockpit photo originally flew the air-mail on the western coastal route. You have control.

Control columns look like something out of a Citroen 2CV! Is it French?

Pre-WWII US single I'd say

The winshield angle has something of the Beech-17 Staggerwing, but I'm quite sure I'd be wrong if I mentionned that airplane ...

Pigboat - Sorry for the delay, not Luscombe Silvaire, this bird was a low wing aircraft.

I'm quite sure i've flown this aircraft or one like it, but for the life of me I can't remember what it is. When you get to my age you've forgotton more than you currently know. but you cannot forget those control wheels!
I'll have a stab at a Temco Swift.
