No, but I've played this game for a few years on another site and it certainly looks Boeing to me.

I don't understand that, but that was my best shot so I give up.

Back on the case after sleep.

I failed to notice the absence of four sets of engine controls.

You are playing games Bear !

It is indeed a 307, but much modified and is now a boat - it's called the Cosmic Muffin.

Is anyone still looking at the aerodrome challenge ?

Correct dook!
but it is definitely still an airplane cockpit!
Worth a google, it was Howard Hughes boat and now the only B-307 cockpit still in operation.
It planes at 20 knots.

No may - a C46.

Off ye go.

Thanks. Purely a chance encounter, and I do not yet have anything to add, so OH I fear.

When the Brazilian Barbie Jet came to these shores, many years ago ( 23 ) the sole type instructor was an elderly American gentleman who had flown C46 on military contracts in the Arctic. No concept of UK Airspace, but he had a golden touch with the aeroplane. Ground School instructor also very special!

Relax dook, it’s these little segues which add to the interest of PPRuNe threads.

I now have a new aircraft nickname to add to my list.

My favourites are still Budgie and DH Tea Kettle.

Again, this has appeared on WC, but before my time and the image used is no longer available, but it should be fairly easy
