Many thanks I must resist jumping in and let others have a crack at it. I am sorry this one hasn't any instruments but I am sure it will not last long.

BT-13? I believe the nick-name for it was the 'Vibrator'.

Sorry this one was not a Vultee BT-13 'Valiant'. This aircraft was not from the USA.

No takers?

The aircraft in Post#622 came several years after the T6 Texan and Vultee BT-13 'Valiant' and was nowhere near as successful as either of these aircraft. It was of European origin and first flew early 1950s.

Still no takers? I am sorry I do not have a complete intrument panel to show. The aircraft concerned was similar in size and performance as the North American T6 Texan, but was designed and built in Europe early 1950s, went into service but was withdrawn late 50s due to accidents.

FYI - The Name that Plane! quiz at www.dauntless-soft.com/AviaQuiz/
seems to have morphed into a What Cockpit? The last two quizzes have been cockpit shots.

Seems odd to have a website called Dauntless and then pose a quiz asking for the name of a cockpit which is related to the website title.
