I think you are concentrating on the wrong detail.
You are looking at the whole dashboard.

I thought I knew a lot about military gliders, but I've just discovered the XLRA-1 and the XLRQ-1 amphibious gliders! One of those two?

Yay! (Re the Observer) but as far as the new balls are concerned try this. Not the best photo, but all I could manage.

Budd Davisson’s review of the C3 is a must read:

Aeronca C-3 Pilot Report

His other reviews are very good too. I must re-read them when I have a spare week!

Re the Aeronca: I didn’t see the Aeronca symbol under the fuel selector until I had posted the photo.

if gone to huge lengths to manoeuvre the camera so that the column obscured the placard with the reg on it!

Will read its review.

Next pic: haven’t a clue!

Twin jet yes.

Long way from a homebuilt though.

Designed for the military and the aim is to sell at below.$US20M per copy.

I didn't know there were so many modern military twin-jets. I still haven't found it!
