Methinks Fokker 50.

OH if correct.

Clue time: Central Europe, and license built in adjacent country. Powered by radial, in-line inverted, and even a horizontally opposed engine. Wings could be folded back to facilitate hangar storage.

Strange lettering on the big white instrument - are we looking towards the East from here?

Morning Aviate,

Yes, look to Eastern Europe!

BTW; as you might have guessed from its condition, this is a replica and not the original.

Here's another little clue, Although the designer and manufacturer were from Eastern Europe, the aircraft's actual name was redolent of Southern Europe

Thanks Sinco TC.

Every time I find an interesting cockpit I discover it on Mel's list.

It has to be OPEN HOUSE


PS The Lampich L-2 Roma replica - did it ever fly? Just curious.

It certainly looks like it did, but it's in a museum now though

Hmm, yes, I know the feeling well; but you just have to keep looking, there's quite a lot out there

Thanks Karlark, I searched high and low with no result.

Just taken a ride in one thanks to youtube.....turn sound down - it's just ear aching slipstream.
