Jelle
It is indeed the SIPA Minijet V200.
I could blurred half the photo but I thought it just such a sharp picture of a beautiful dashboard that did not want to spoil it.

The UFO is probably a guide wheel for a hanging rolling door.
Dixi, thanks for the explanation about the bearing selector.

Jelle has control.

Flap and gear control - it's clearly labeled.
It combines flap and gear control into one lever and each system has two selections, raise and lower. The off function is in the middle of the H gate as depicted. Indicators on the panel comfirm u/c and flap position achieved.

Lethal altimeter!

I was wondering myself:
Are those both altitude change meters
m/s and pieds/minute?

"When I grow up I want to be a Vampire..." Charming little jet, but that lever is a recipe for disaster that reminds me of the identical flaps and gear switches in the B-17s.

The Spanish ASI, stick, pedals and mag switch are all spanish built BU 131 but it looks brand new. I will have to go for the Bucker though. Maybe a re-build.

I'll have to hand the controls to ea200. Officially it's a CASA 1-131E Jungmann, but let's not argue about the details...

Thanks Jhieminga. Silly of me, knew it was a spanish one and forgot the CASA designation. The mag switch with the little key on a chain was an immediate giveaway. Only flown one once, delightful.

Let's try this.

As I understood the Reinhard Mey challenge was appreciated;
I stumbled over another VIP in a cockpit photo were the aircraft type was not stated.
No extra points for the VIPís name and I can assure you his tie was clipped long before this photo was taken.

I have not (yet) found Electra juniors with an horizontal division.
The glass also seems curved and Electras had only flat glass panels?
certainly not wing commander Gibbs.
But he was (titular) RAF Commodore.


Same day same cockpit with his personal (Co-) pilot. Who was also special adjudant to the missus of the Captain

It is a Stinson L-5B-VW Sentinel. PH-PBB with His Royal Highness Prince Bernhard at the controls.

Wing Commander Gibbs was the pseudonym for HRH in WW2, that was the easy bit. Several photographs of that time in the cockpit appear on Interweb, none helping with aircraft ident though one appeared to show the Prince leaving an aircraft. Do I get a mark for the name of his Sealyham, often sharing a cockpit on flights, even if aircraft incorrect?

Your photographs from as far back as HM Queen Wilhelmina show the interest in Aviation expressed by the Dutch Royal Family.

HRH Bernhard's office of Inspector General is in Hilversum which is next to my home field. They website of the airport (ehhv.nl, history page) has a page on him with pictures.

Also the actual plane is restored and based on the military airport of Gilze-Rijen. Owner is Royal Netherlands Historical Flight (kluhv.nl) of which I'm a sponsor.

Jenkins, my apologies!
My bad not knowing about wing commander Gibbs.

Archy,
I doubt this cockpit photo was PH-PBB.

I have one more photo of HRH with his aide mr Gerben Sonderman beside the aircraft.
Apologies that it is no longer a What cockpit but now also Name that flying machine.

The game is still on and Jenkins can still go for full points.
