OK. A bit more nostalgia then.
The prototype of this aircraft first flew more than 60 years ago.
And for extra points I want to know the correct name of the manufacturer of this particular (a later model in the series ) aircraft.

(Hooray: I managed to stop Google images finding this image)

Well, it's XH558 as was, G-VLCN as is, and the CAA's database has it as manufactured by 'AV Roe and Co Ltd' but I suspect the answer you're looking for is 'Hawker Siddeley'.

That's it.
As Avro was absorbed in the mergers in 1963, to be pedantic it became a Hawker Siddlely Vulcan. I doubt many use that name though.

Well done. You have control sir.

Apologies, I thought I had something but alas no.

Therefore, OPEN HOUSE.

Yes. It's very sad when you have memories of flying in ones that looked more like this.

Nothing handy right now, so OPEN HOUSE.

SAAB

Saab 29 Tunnan?
Interesting choice Kitbag, so I ran with it. Didn't find the Tunnan cockpit illustrated - but the J21A was there...

Thanks oldpax - but Kitbag deserves the credit for that one. So, over to Kitbag, or open house.

Cheers.

Thank you, Noyade, that is very generous of you. TBH that was just a punt. Nothing readily to hand just yet, it being silly o'clock in the morning here. Open House.

Certainly a twin, a lot more elegant looking, IMHO, than the Beaufighter, with a similar crew disposition, but nowhere near as heavily armed. Not British, despite how the gauges may appear

G'day Kitbag.

Found a PDF on Japanese cockpits - this looks similar, the Mitsubishi Ki-46 Dinah II?
