The person who has set the challenge seems to have lost interest, which is probably why everyone else has.

No posts for almost a year, so just for fun (!), here's another cockpit. (Some clues: this craft has only 300 hours airborne quite a long time ago; three jet engines of which only one remains attached).

None of the above are quite correct, but Glevum is closest. Again, this is just for fun.
Another clue: This is the last example extant.

Well done Russell. I was just thinking we hadn’t seen any cockpits for a while.

No clue about your challenge, though.

Self loading bear has it. This and two other high-speed train types are the last remaining examples from '70s tests. They are at the
Pueblo Railroad Museum







I hope everyone forgives the non-aviation element! SLB has control.

Thanks Russel,
after the others showed me the way it was only a quick google.
Quite cryptic about 2 out of 3 engines falling away. But completely correct!
The third being the original first engine only installed as generator .

I have something appropriate stored on my computer which i can only access tomorrow.
But i think the pace of this thread will allow this delay?

Fantastic to see this thread re-awakening.

This, “what Aerodrome?” And the Luton Airport thread are the best.

Now, if I was clever enough to find and post some cockpit pics, I would.

long live “what cockpit!”

Same era but this aircraft has been produced in far greater numbers (17 instead of 2)

That looks like a Walter NZ 60 up front, so could it be a Pander EC ??

Tinco,
Very well spotted.
Pander E or EC
1 is being reproduced in the Netherlands at the moment.
A Pander Walter engine has been given to the Aviodrome museum.
Tinco at the controls.

Thanks SLB,

A good challenge! The number produced was a help, but I discounted the prototype model E because Wiki says that had an Anzani Six cylinder radial

I know this one has appeared on What Cockpit, but well over a decade ago and I'm not sure if it was this image as the original images don't seem to be available now, so let's give it another try

Good morning TC.

You shouldn't be up so late at your age !

Was this a seaplane/flying boat ?
