A very interesting and complex aircraft - what frightened me was reading once about an F-11 test pilot who was asked if it was possible to land one with the wings swept back (at around 200kt)

"Sure" he said " just like every landing in a B-58....."

My apologies if I jump in too early

Looking at the power levers I would say that's an early twin turboprop.

looking at the trim wheels it looks very industrial - hardly FBW I think.......................

It sort of vaguely reminds me of an Atlantic or an F-27 - it's neither but I'm thinking something substantial...........

But The Friendship, Viscount and Dart Herald all look older so perhaps not that old

Dook, as a non-pilot myself, what are the clues that make it Dart powered as opposed to any other contemporary turboprop? There seems a lot of engine related levers compared to a pure jet or even modern turboprop.

The conditioning levers distinguish it from modern turboprops and therefore most likely Darts.

I have only flown one turboprop and it had single-lever controls like a jet.

Dam. I've just seen something that should give it away.

Oh dear - you certainly did and it does.

Why don't you remove it, brush it out and then replace it.

Too late me thinks.
I got the photo so you couldn't see the name on the control column, but missed the other one.
Have this one on me.
I remember a demo of one of these in the '80s. Amazing that wouldn't stall, just kept dipping the nose.
