Ah, my error - should be the Dinah III then? Thanks.

Another Jap Cockpit Cutaway in return then...

Given the lack of a HUD, is it the prototype North American YA-5C Vigilante?


Note the mechanical wind-up stop-watch, installed just right of centre, mid-panel. How quaint.

Nary a single reply within the last H24. A clue will be forthcoming at approximately 1900Z (UTC).

I don't know, it's doing my swede no good. I'm guessing late WWII twin prop job, maybe some sort of fast light bomber from US but can't find anything close.

Not American, not a prop job. More Vigilante like than U-2 like.
Here is the back seat:

Thinking it must be the Tu22 Blinder, then.

I was thinking Backfin, but wiki says that was a 3-seater > so, maybe Fiddler?

Yes, the Tupolev TU-128 interceptor. The largest interceptor ever to enter serial production.


Your turn.

kitbag, good idea and it's made me think outside the box (the blue interior was making me think Russia). I thought I had seen those seats somewhere - one of the SAAB range, probably some form of late serial/upgraded Viggen.

Dagnabbit CGB, I think you're spot on, although I can't find an exact match the warning panels either side of the drivers knees and the clip on the glare shield do it for me. Hopefully Noyade is an early riser.
