I was looking at the F102 Delta Dagger as the cockpit framing appears to have the distinctive triangular form, but panel and control column do no match. Also of course period is correct but first flight year wrong. Got me stumped.

Nord 1405 Gerfaut?
Only found an FSX digital cockpit but that looks close.

Dassault Mystere II
edit: though it is no delta wing, and first flight in 1951. Mystere iv 1954, but cockpit a bit different.
Then theres the MD550 Mystere Delta, but the sources I found state first flight 25th June 1955, and I can't find any cockpit picture.


Edit2: Another source claims the mystere-delta first flight on 25th June 1954, so either is incorrect. But I cant find a picture of the cockpit so cant be 100% sure.

Thanks Noyade.

@Beamr:

looked at the Delta Mystere.
but I could find a cockpit photo which showed to be different enough to omit it.
No this:


Does it count as a cockpit photo?

I think it is the Eaglet glider which was aero towed across the USA.The telephone was to communicate with the tow plane.
OH if correct.

Yes it does, as that's what it is.
Not sure about the headgear but it was a BOAC-credited photo so must be right!
Sideshow Bob has declared Open House.

I guess the prominent red handle isn't an ejector seat but perhaps a parachute recovery system?
