By the labelling of the turn indicator and the HSI I think it might be Swedish. Go to leave now so I will leave it to others to ponder that.

Sorry Jelle,

Dook has stabbed right in the heart with the SAAB Lansen.
Dook on the stick.

Is the new challenge ex-military?

This is I believe is an instrument panel from a helicopter possibly from the USA.

K-max cockpit
It looks massiv, square bulky but when you add a pilot it all comes into proportion:

I trust the Nimbus was bolted to a Scour or Wasp?.

I worked alongside the first K Max to work fires in NSW , and the most difficult thing for a 'regular' helicopter driver to accept was the single pilot with spectacular view from either side. Excellent Helitack machine, shifted heaps of litres onto the fires. I believe they're now also being used to develop unmanned load delivery for the Military in the USA.

Properties? Who on earth would bother to search for that sort of clue

Aye aye Sir....

I took this one a few years ago of Dad, in keeping with images of the cockpits of proper aircraft
