It might be a B-52. Isn't it the only one with 8 engines?

I think the "8" throttles are merely 4 each of "His 'n Hers" fame!

Whatever it is those GPS/moving map displays on the yoke don't look stock to me....  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

It appears to be equipped as a VC-118A Liftmaster.

Hi there.....

I bet you all are waiting for the answer.

Interesting to see the answers that came up. Even got a couple that I wasn't expecting.

Anyway most of you where in the correct area. We even had a direct hit on the answer by Minuteman. The cockpit in the picture is from a VC-118 which is the military version of the Douglas DC-6.

I hope you all have fun. I have to get another picture scanned in for next weeks shot! Smile/happy/getting dizzy
