Hi Bear.
Based on the clues and with a significant amount of angled spinterproof(?) glass - possibly the Curtiss B-2 Condor?
It has a swing-over control column.
But the framing does look slightly different...

Give that man a cigar!
Indeed the Curtiss B-2.
My photo is of the XB-2 prototype which might explain the slightly different window framing.

swing over the controls to Noyade.

That dash is from Tupolev TU-144, but that first pic... 99,9% sure it is of a Concorde. So which is it then?

It is the TU_144 - I grabbed the "concorde" photo of a site that was all Tu-144 so I think it's OK - apologies if it was wrong

Over to India 42
