Couldn't see this on Mel's list. Unfortunately not many controls to see...

You have a good nose aviate1138 as it is the Convair R3Y Tradewinds.

You have control.

Thanks Mel.

Having spent some time [unsuccessfully] trying to find a cockpit that is not on Mel's list I have to declare that it is Open House.

Unusual to see a picture of it all, let alone such a clear one.

Will declare open house until I'm familiar with what has or hasn't been covered.

The list of what cockpits have been posted is on the third Sticky from the top on the Threads In The Forum Aviation History and Nostalgia page.

It was seven years ago yesterday that Clint aka Mr_Grubby started this thread when he posted the C46 Commando cockpit photograph as the first challenge. Who would have believed it would be running 7 years later and some 1870 cockpits, give or take a few duplications?
