Don't try to do IFR on this plane, look at your artificial horizon!

This aircraft has the most unusual instrument panel. Every time I see a cockpit shot of this type I am confused even on a VFR day.

Hey, check out the artificial horizon of this AC. Probaly the aircraft have a vacuum pump failure. Don`t try this at home!

Good lens choice - always interesting to see both cockpit and scenery.

I too was wondering about the upside down indicator...?

The vertical gyro is perfectly OK. It's a different type of vertical gyro (older version often seen in Russia etc.) which displays upside down. I.e. in a 'nose up' conditon it will point down into the blue.

The Attitude Indicator is an old Russian/Soviet model - most probably from an aerobatic Zlin, Z-142 or similar - which is "upside down" by design... this is not a failure. When the aircraft pitches up, the globe moves up, placing the aeroplane symbol into the blue area by the required amount - and vice versa when pitching down.

Hard to get avgas? Think it's even harder to get mogas!

Nice landscape ... maybe it is not an AI failure after all, however there does seem to be a tiny red flag at the bottom right corner of the instrument. Never seen anything like it before !

The flag is - I think - an indication of the instrument being locked in aerobatic mode ("caged" if you will in Western terminology) so it doesn't tumble and damage itself during aerobatic flight.

The scenery is beautiful captured trough a small window showing our fantastic coastal areas in Norway.

Before anyone comments on a HK-36 panel you should know that the Attitude Indicator and DG have independent switches so the pilot may chose exactly which electrical consumers are required. In most cases the Attitude Indicator is switched off - as it is here.
