Cubs2jets is correct Well done This single-engine pressurised Mooney M-22 Mustang is not to be confused wth the prototype twin-engine Mooney Mustang of the 1950s. You have control.

Guys.

Sorry for my late reply. Been out all day doing the "Cubs" part of my persona. I find that what I had ready has already been done. Forgive me...


OPEN HOUSE!

Might it be an Armstrong Whitworth AW-15 Atlanta?

Too early I now think, maybe an Ensign?

Wallowing in ground effect..........thud.

C2J you do not need the question mark, yes yes yes, I thought that would cause more problems, I didn't include you in that equation !!!!
Hope you have another ? Keith.

Give me a few hours and I WILL have a pic to post. It was just something about those yokes and rudder pedals. Thought it might have been another 4 engine airliner though.

The FW Condor did indeed enter service first as an airliner.

I have always thought that the FW 200 was a very good looking aircraft, for it's time, it was so spooky that whilst searching for that photo I found, like London buses, they come in two's, see below. Keith.

Considering its vintage, that was a pretty sanitary looking cockpit except for the 'Rube Goldberg' demisting arrangement in your second shot!

I assume the first photo was of a DLH aircraft and second shot was a military version??

OK! Sorry for the delay. Here is the next What Cockpit.



I do have a second image if this one doesn't provide enough clues.

On a note, the white rectangle is where I have removed the photographers name. I WILL give due credit when the challenge is over. (Hope I haven't broken any rules, just wanted to reduce a possible clue.)

Sycamore,

Neither the Avenger or Corsair but obviously, I think, of generally the same vintage.

LOL !! Evansb, I sure hope that you plan on donating your extensive library to a worthy entity when the time comes.

It is indeed the Northrop XP-56 Black Bullet - the only one of three that survives. Pictures taken by Phillip Juvet at the Western Air Museum in 1989. The aircraft has been returned to the Smithsonian NASM.

Over to you...

Looks like Gen. Curtiss LeMay in the captain's seat. Convair B-36?
