Why is PPRuNe changing the a into an @ sign?
I seem to remember it is something to do with the issues related to people pointing green devices of this type at aircraft!

Good one nvbu - itís an interesting one. With the industrial steam-punk style, Iím guessing weight wasnít a primary concern. Something nautical perhaps?

I'm thinking it's a B-24 Liberator during construction.

This challenge is running way too long.
Earlier tonight I thought that the left hinged canopy would be a valuable clue.
But it showed there are a considerable number of left hinges.
Then I identified the Martin Baker Mk7 ejection seat.
As ?all? applications are given on the MB site and
Together with the apparent preference of Jelle for German experimental aircraft.
i come to the EWR VJ 101.

Oops, should have checked this thread a bit sooner. You've got it SLB, it is indeed another German Senkrechtstarter. I found a nice set of photos here: VJ-101 C pictures I and couldn't resist.... I guess I have to change my preferences to keep this a bit challenging next time.

This might be a simple challenge for the experienced threaders.
Perhaps give the others a 24 hour head start?
Did one see any other aircraft with a gear shift lever?

Allright, I'll wait a bit before posting the answer.... You could have made this a much greater challenge!

I don't think that's a compass on the left, but I'm with you on the NSEW.
It's an Omni Bearing Selector for the VOR part of a VOR/LOC indicator. It should go with a King KX170 or similar that appears to have been stolen.

I reckon this is the survivor that's in Europe, that one doesn't appear to have flown for a while. Perhaps the NavCom was needed for another aircraft.

Good question, there are more photos from the same sequence here: https://www.machdiamonds.com/s200.html but none of them show that particular UFO in more detail.
