Thumbs up What Cockpit??

Not too bad for a visitor from the Western Colony at midnight!! I must admit that the Aeroplane magazine for November gave most of the answers with the fact that the controls were pneumatically controlled and the extra gauges in your pictures showed that.
It would take too long for me to dig up anything from my murky past although I have a Bristol Freighter one but you have already done that one!!
I will hand over control to one of you esteemed experts and lurk in wonder at the things I have, mainly thankfully, missed.
Thanks for allowing my brain to work??

Speedbird48 graciously gave us carte blanche to post a cockpit photo.
Anyone have a photo to share?

It would seem that we have no takers at present so I will submit one to keep things going. Not that it will last for long.

Sorry for the delay. However, it is not the cockpit of the SE5a.

No challengers? Surely not that difficult,HappyJack260 was correct in one thing this aircraft did have a Vickers machine-gun on the port side of cockpit, however this was not the only armament. This "maid of all work" aircraft was about the same vintage as the SE5a.

Not the Bristol F2B Fighter but it's first flight was around the same time as the F2B.

Jabberwok.
Es ist die rechte Antwort.
Der Armstrong Whitworth F.K.8 otherwise known as the 'Big Ack'. The F.K.8 was produced in considerable numbers and played a significant,if unspectacular,part in WWI from the begining of 1917 until the Armistice, including actions which led to the award of two Victoria Crosses.

You have control.

No-one ready? I don't remember this being done before, but can't find the full spreadsheet....




Should be very easy.
