From the other thread:
”I was the guilty party regarding the Dassault’s placard which I’d failed to notice or recognise its significance. Sorry!”
No problem!
I think you still have handover control to Cubs2Jets?
Than he can post the next challenge when he wakes up.

Throttle quadrant looks like a DC3.

Hmmmm...

Looks to be an aviator famous for flying this plane to a first, but more famous for flying multi-engined aircraft.

I love the Morse key on the right side of the cockpit. Just in case you have any spare capacity while learning to fly under the hood, you can send Morse at the same time!

This man was not exactly learning to fly under the hood.

I thought he was self-taught?

It’s Jimmy Doolittle and the cockpit is the Guggenheim Fund’s Consolidated NY-2 NX7918

Exactly!
I got the first photo from a Flight Global article about cyber security in the aircraft industry.
At the time of posting I did not even know myself who and what the plane were.
Cub2Jet had clearly recognized the man and the photo.
So I myself had to find the answer too!

Jimmy Doolittle made the first instrument take off and landing in this NY-2 in 1929. Instrument flying only was already mastered by Jimmy at that time and common practice in advanced pilot training.

India has control

Ps the article of Flight Global is recommended!

This looks like a twin-engine military job and I think turboprop.

Some of the labelling seems to be in Spanish.

Can't be many aeroplanes like that around.
