Don't look like Boeing yokes. IAI Astra Jet, forget the model number of the thing, the tall one where you needed a ladder to check the oil.

Merci evansB!

Can't believe it hadn't been on before. Had a jump seat ride in one once, from Ajaccio to Marseilles. It seemed like a really sophisiticated airliner, streets ahead of the 737-200 I was flying at the time.

I think it fell flat through very low range, being designed for very short sectors only. I seem to recall its JT8-Ds were very low powered. -7s I think, though the 737-200 managed to go from -7s through to -17As with a great gain in thrust, so it probably wasn't just lack of thrust.

Shame to have gone to all that trouble to end up with only 10 aeroplanes. I also recall the Air Inter crew saying that Dassault refurbished the pre-production aeroplane which had been built for testing , and not intended to fly, to give them an 11th aeroplane. The crew certainly loved it.

One thing I still haven't completely mastered though, is how to post a cockpit. Exacerbated by the fact that the only ones I could post have already appeared.

Open house to all you experts, please keep them coming.

BSD.

Okay, now that I know what it is I remember where I had seen the cockpit before, well a picture of the cockpit.

At the Dassault factory in Bordeaux. Actually an aircraft well ahead of its time.

pigboat, would that be the 1125 Astra Jet you're thinking about? Or the Galaxy? Which are now the G-150 and the G-200. (I think.)

Akubra. I would say you were spot on there. However we did in fact have the Miles M100 Student back in Feb 2006.

If not a Student, the Gemini? It could be two throttle levers, couldn't it?

Perhaps my eyesight's failing....

RETDPI is correct. It is indeed the W.W.II Deutsche Forschungsanstalt fur Segelflug DFS-230 armed assault glider. Well done. You have control.
