Meyers MAC 145. Suspicious are the wheel wells protruding into the cabin floor, the high door sills (2 doors), the strut behind the windscreen and a constant speed prop. The position of the main gear is indicating a taildragger.

Quite correct, D26. You have the con.

Yes it made flying much easier!
But that was also required as there was no room for a window anymore!

"Of the period", perhaps! Budd Davisson report: pilot report on Meyers 145

Back to our regular reporting.

Indeed AVRO 19 with one of the first auto pilots.
Not much room for a real pilot left!

Beagle got ahead.

I am sorry, I think the picture is not from an Anson but from a DC-4 who 1947 flew across the Atlantic Ocean on a very early auto pilot. The picture is a screen shot from a movie clip you'll find here:

1944 DC4 completely automatic Atlantic crossing to Prestwick.

I think you are right. My source is probably wrong. I already thought the C19 cabin being quite higher than one would expect from the outside.
Sorry Beagle but I think the helm should go to D26.
You have control!

Hi Bear. I tired to 'draw' the solution out yesterday - and kept thinking the interior wall diameter suggested quite a big aircraft. But I wasn't sure if there was an open doorway to the left?
Nice find D26.
