Is it a Fokker 100?

No actually, it's a Fokker 50 (I think!)

The lack of responses is disappointing, especially given the lineage of the aircraft.

evansb's challenge

Well Bri I let it run for 48 hours but no one seems to want to play. It is the cockpit of a British Aerospace ATP.

Mel is correct The BAe ATP was a bit of a disappointment, sales-wise, especially given the aircraft's lineage. Perhaps the last of a great line of British built turboprop transports. You have control.

Thanks for that Bri. There are still many cockpits out there that have yet to be published.
This next one might be a bit of a challenge however, clues will follow if required.

The aircraft in question is the Sevensky BT-8.

It is now open House.

To clear the air, I have apologized to MReyn24050 for posting something in public that should have been discussed in private.

I have removed the post and the responses in order to keep the thread on track.

Cheers,
Evileyes

Only reason I have not been posting in recent times is I havn't a clue! Looks 1930's American and reminds me of the Stearman, but as we have had that already.....?

It is certainly American and was indeed built early 1930s but not as you say a Stearman.

This aircraft comes from the same manufacturer but was not an observation aircraft.

XC-99, obviously on a boring flight.

If I'm correct, anyone who's ready can have a go. I need to pore over the "already posted" list before uploading anything.

Sorry ozbeowulf, not the Convair XC-99. It is, however, an American built aircraft.
