Unusual throttles.. Windscreen frame is not substantial, therefore leading me to believe it is perhaps an open cockpit, side-by-side monoplane, with a side door?

You are correct in that it did have an open cockpit and had side-by-side seating. It also was a monoplane with a side doors,

Well done. There is no beating you. It is indeed the Kinner B-1 Sportster N727W under restoration at MID-ATLANTIC AIR MUSEUM.

You regain control.

Thanks Mel! I enjoyed the research. I understand that Mr. Kinner is the holder of the original "swing-wing" stowage patent. I will be posting a new cockpit challenge by 0230Z(UTC).

Hoover vacuums and AM/MW crystal tuned wireless radios were the "bee's knees".

Metal 'frame. Centre mounted instrument panel. Six identical guages (fuel tanks?) Two control wheels. No windscreen. Wheels offset to see out the sides?

Ryan Monoplane as in Lindbergh?

Here's picture www.geocities.com/.../Lab/4515/spirit.htmof the Ryan panel - so it can't be that.
Wonder whether perhaps it's a blimp or airship...

A swing-Barling Bomber. If correct, don't give me control yet until I've got this business figured out. Will you tolerate a few questions?
1. Is it possible to print any of this, such as BOAC's tips?
2. Some earlier pictures only show up as little x'x in little boxes. Is there a trick to seeing them?
3. I'm trying Photobucket, can the name of the subject be removed from the URL before posting?
Sorry to intrude with my ignorance. If there is a more appropriate time and place for this, please let mo know. Woods
