I think he was trying to say that you left the description of the aircraft in the photobucket file name. it doesn't take Sherlock Holmes to discover it's a 'gnatcockpit'.

If it's a single seat gnat, isn't it then a Midge?


And as for the instruments. I know the old AHARS was hard to use, but it has to be better than that in the picture. The scan must be horrid for an aircraft with such high performance.

IIRC Folland's Midge was the original, lower powered, aircraft from which both the single- and twin-seat Gnats were developed; it was effectively the Gnat prototype and only one or two were built.

stilton is probably unaware there are rules on this thread, or doesn't care. In his absence, I hereby declare open house.

While we are waiting, that Gnat cockpit looks like it has been civilianized. Does anyone know the source of the photo?

That Gnat cockpit photo was taken by me at north weald about 6years ago.
i have looked through other photos taken at that time and i dont have any others.
so i cannot identify the registration of that aircraft.
i have looked closely at that photo and still cant find any clues.
sorry not a lot of help!!!

Might be nice if there was a way to make those rules a bit more noticeable. Unless you are a regular here you may not pick up on the pecking order. I committed the same offence some time ago as I was unaware of the rules. It wasn't that I didn't care.

Yes, Stilton you can post a cockpit of your choosing but check Mel's handy sticky [What Cockpit and What Aerodrome latest Lists.] at the top of the page to avoid any repeats.

Yes, stilton, it is your turn to post a mystery cockpit photo. The person who correctly identifies the mystery cockpit has 12 hours from confirmation by the originator, to post a challenge. If you are unable to post a photo, you can declare open house, thereby allowing other ppruners an opportunity to post a mystery cockpit photo.

The windows are a bitch to clean but we're happy with it.

Here's the front yard...

This is the first time in this thread that I've seen the whole aircraft and I've still not got clue to what it is.

Okay, I think we've had enough of the floating alien head. It's the Canadian 21st Century Airships SPAS 13 of 1994, registration C-FRLM, which was a semi-rigid helium airship demonstrator powered by two 50 hp Rotax 503 engines.

Open House.
