New one, not much instrument detail, but it is a cockpit, albeit not very comfy and probably a bit noisy, but great if you wan't to keep an eye on the donk

Suspicions confirmed correct!

Yes, up to five passengers in more comfort than their bold pilot!

Indeed it was, lucky fellow!! Hot, noisy and probably smelly on one side and a freezing draught on the other side! Still, it's a living

That's the one mate, The Fokker F.III, this is one re-engined by KLM with an Armstrong Siddeley Puma in the LH side of the cockpit, the original war surplus BMW IIIa engine required the pilot to sit on the other side

Control is yours , or is it time to level out?
