SAAB 29 Tunnan!
asw28-866 has the right feeling. Visible in the back is the tail and engine of the SAAB 21 pusher aircraft. This points to Sweden. I have not been able to find out which museum, however.

Yes it's the Torun - well done - as I said - you have to be very very careful what is in any challenge you post on PPRUNE - there's always someone who has been there, seen that....................

Thanks all. The SAAB 21 in the background was quite special, as it started off powered with a piston engine and later was converted to a jet engine. Had one of the first ejection seats for obvious reasons.

Open house, please!

artistic.... looks like England's green and pleasant land?

and that 's a hell of a set of industrial window latches to port

also awful lack of instrumentation on the left side side - pre 1939??

Ahhh - that makes it a lot easier -

#1 Google British Aircraft Hampshire

#2 Assume it's something totally obscure

and we finish with the Cunliffe-Owen Concordia - an aircraft which has not graced my knowledge in times past. You learn something new on here every time!!

Can we please restrict challenge submissions to actual cockpit photos only? No flight sim screenshots or manufacturer's artist's impressions!

Inaccurate flightsim rubbish I entirely agree with, but what's wrong with manufacturer's artist's impressions? Would you object to a Munger drawing? If it's accurate I don't really see the problem, but I'll try to avoid them in future.

Anyhow, I gave that one away too easily but Asturias has the challenge.

I agree with meleagertoo - it was a nice change - and it's a very good drawing. After all people have but up silhouettes before in What Aircraft?

but it's OH - maybe someone else other than us two can have a go?

I kindly disagree, we are in the Nostalgia forum and this was an historic picture. I would not be surprised if it actually was a painted over black and white photograph. We have had drawings out of manuals before also original and historical.

For computer renderings of modern jets I completely agree with you!

By the logo it could be a Aeronca.
Aeronca 9 Arrow?

Yes, pre-1945. Wiki says the company went bankrupt in 1937.
Not from Aeronca.

Moving on, the cockpit belongs to Walt Dobe's Kinner R-5 Playboy from northern California.
Open House.
