The First Aid kit looked familiar to me, but I can’t think of any Canadian two-seaters that fit the bill.

It is European.
When the photos were taken 30 years ago it was flying in the USA - hence maybe the Canadian first-aid kit?

Enhancing the image the top left has "Park" and the white square has Bearing and Temp underneath it so probably US/Canada/UK/Australia?

The Speed runs up to 700 mph

Lots of toggle switches but nothing electronic.

Possibly 1943- 1953 and military? No civi aircraft was pushing 700 mph in those days just after the war
