Sorry wonderboysteve, it is not the Boeing/Vertol 360, but you are close.

Looking at the latest cockpit reminds me why I don't fly helicopters, if it takes that many joysticks just to get one airborne!

How about a CH47 Chinook of somesort?

'866' is correct. The Boeing/Vertol CH-47B was operated by NASA at the Ames Research Center. It was equipped with a large computer to simulate force-feel control responses and terrain following via the CRT screen.
You have control, Sir.

As zkdli states, it is a SF-260. I don't know which U.K. event it won first place in, so we will have to wait for a response from '866'.

ZKDLI yes 1973 SF260B, note this is a purpose built civilian one, not ex-military so command seat is in the conventional place on the left. This one as G-BDEN won the Kings Cup Air Race, I know 'cos my dad was driving it!


Here it is in it's UK Days...

But it says '69' on the tail! As zkidli doesn't have a photo, I'll step in. Shouldn't take too long!

Happy Birthday What Cockpit.


Two years ago today I first started this thread !
Who would have thought it would still be going today.
I wonder how many views and replies in total the thread has had ?

Well done Mr. Grubby

Clint,
I have learnt an awful lot about the many and varied forms of aerial carriage through the ages from this thread! Well done Sir!

What Cockpit 2 years old.

Hi Clint
I agree with everything that asw28-866 says. I am not sure about the number of views there have been but it must be in excess of 250,000. I do know that there have been 7,027 replies to date and some 800+ different cockpits presented,that includes a few duplicates but the number of duplicates amounts to approx only 30 aircraft.
There are still plenty more out there.

Looks like a corner of a BC-348 peeping out from the radio op's desk. That would imply it's a US plane.

Mel correctly identified it in his PM, and it's obviously a duplicate. However, if your new to the thread there are over 2700 posts to plough through to find one that hasn't been posted. Is there a list anywhere?

Not US. But a derivative of a copied US aircraft. That should give it away.

Li-2 ? Development of the Li-2 was the Il-14.

It wouldn't be the Russian DC-3? The Lisunov Li-2 would it? If it is, as I am away for a few days...open house.

If not, well I'll eat my hat!

Yes, it is a duplicate - more than once! And it is an IL14. Airborne Artist has control.

Duplicate

Not a problem Dan without knowledge of the list it is easily done. However, your photograph is one that has not been presented before, have you more details regarding the aircraft in the photograph?
Your proposal in your PM regarding a competitions forum is possibly an idea,it depends how the mods feel about it.
