Something slightly different, it is a cockpit but no instrument panel on show I am afraid.

RETDPI is obviously a man who knows his aircraft.. It is indeed the Aerfer Sagittario II. However Sycamore's choice the Ambrosini (Aerfer) Ariete is very very close as both aircraft were basically similar and I would say be almost impossible to tell the difference from the photograph posted.

From Virtual Aircraft Museum
After tests with a 45 sweptback wing fitted to an otherwise standard Ambrosini S.7, thus nicknamed Freccia (Arrow), the designer Sergio Stefanutti designed the Sagittario (Archer) powered by a 400kg thrust Turbomeca Marbore turbojet. Intended mainly for aerodynamic research into transonic compressibility, the Sagittario was built largely of wood, and flew for the first time on 5 January 1953. From this initial prototype Stefanutti subsequently developed the Sagittario II, which made its maiden flight on 19 May 1956. Powered by a Rolls-Royce Derwent 9 turbojet, this more advanced aircraft was virtually a new design and of all-metal construction. The Sagittario II was the first aircraft of Italian design to exceed Mach unity when it reached Mach 1.1 in a dive on 4 December 1956.
You have control.

The Ariete and Sagittario were pretty well identical around the cockpit. Actually I guessed Ariete first then checked on line. As now preserved at Vigna di Valle ,the anti-glare panel on the preserved Sagittario matched your shot (the Ariete now not having one) -so I changed my post.

I don't recall this cockpit being posted.....

Sorry 8028410q could you please hold your post until RETDPI's challenge has been identified or open house is given, otherwise confusion reigns.

Su -15 "Flagon" it certainly is , well done 8028410q . (Hmm. That looks vaguely like a comparatively recent service number.???)

Looks like we are all back on track as you've just posted( and deleted) so you can now reinstate.

Then off we go again .
