Dove (DH104, Mk 8) it is.

(Note to self: must find harder challenges -- and try harder on other's pictures too.)

Hi dave! I think this is the cockpit of a YAK-52. Am I right?

Looks like a twin circa 1930s with some form of Autopilot?

Hi cringe
I guess that is the Beriev Be-6. Which would be one of these.

Did not think it would be that hard. Aircraft flew late 1930s.
