I was still trying to come up with a suitably vague answer to your question Mreyn, but C2j found the subject aircraft.

I guess you gents are all on the right side of the pond? While equipped slightly differently, the above panel is a distinct part of the cockpit.



For the first 4 years of production, these instruments were additional cost upgrades. The panel they sit in could be blank, one hole in the center or two holes. The compass cost 15.63 and the airspeed 20.00. Oh, yes, an appropriate panel cost .37.

Flight deck not so hard to recognise, but the mods. Surprising device.

Loose rivets,
I cannot see any post in which the Cub challenge is awarded to you, but you have most certainly posted an interesting Cessna 172 cockpit.
I am not sure where you are after but I think it is an F-model.

SLB you're smarter than the average bear. The 1937 -1940 J3 Cub.

You have control.

Thanks CtJ,

Perhaps we will receive closure from Loose Rivets later but we can continue with this challenge:

Oh my goodness!!!!! That control grip. I bought one of those brand new in Lisle St with the intention of putting in my Jag which already had several mods - like pressing the gas down into the carpet kicked out the overdrive. There is no doubt, it's the exact one. 7/6, IIRC.




The cockpit mods are in a 172 What Cockpit? operated by Col Carl Crane, and instrument flying pioneer. He lectured at eh USAF advanced instrument flying school - just telling the stories about the old days. They were jaw-dropping.

The brass cross was a patented device called 'The Nose Knows.' If you pinned the cross on a point on the runway, you'd arrive there.

The black box was a prototype blind landing system. As an invited tester, I did one blind landing after another over some weeks of early morning stints. Before San Antonio Tx became busy with the days traffic.

Looking at those control columns begs the question is this a rotary machine?

Dashboard layout is a bit like Ryan SC-W but looks more modern.
Is it American?
