That gauge does indeed indicate Ammonia quantity.

I will leave it for others to name the aircraft type.

No. All I did was to provide a larger image of the mystery cockpit than the very small one you submitted.

Someone else should name the aicraft.

Is this aircraft actually powered by ammonia, because I've searched every such one I can find (and there aren't many) and none are remotely similar - or is the ammonia used for something else?

An excellent question.

The ammonia appears to have been used in the air conditioning system - both for electronics and crew..................

Ammonia was used for electrical equipment coolig durin taxying, approach and landing and during in-flight electronic system overheat conditions.


Ombinda, you are correct - you have control!

Seriously good bit of lateral confusion sowed there - well done. Even though Beagle did recognise it.

I searched long and hard for any aircraft that used ammonia for any purpose and drew a blank.

Extreme cooling - aircon - ammonia. Yes - of course!

Respect!!!

Also used on the ISS for similar purposes.
Smelling salts.
Can be used to manufacture methamphetamine.
And is used for treatment of cotton materials.

For those playing at home with no access to wikipedia.
