Okay, here is the original challenge photo exposing the rudder pedals:


More clues: Originally produced by a different company, but in small numbers. Take-over company produced gliders under license for the USAAF during WW.II. Started production of the mystery aircraft in 1945-46.

Fleet 80 Canuck, methinks.... but it has been done already. Even so, the rudders pedals fit and that center instrument pod shows up in other Canuck photos. An early modification or a variant, perhaps?

Thanks Brian. That looks an interesting hangar. Is that a Helio in the background?
Here is another challenge.

Yes. All those radios obviously didn't fool anybody. It is the Air Tractor AT802U. Well done, Super Cecil. Your turn to post a photo.

Rudder pedals - again.

EDIT:
Ooops! When I looked, I scrolled down immediately and guess all the pictures hadn't loaded. All I saw was the firebomber version of the AT-802 with rudder pedals in the picture. Didn't see the prior challenge or the current one. I do now.
