Hi yall....

Hope you have been having fun with these so far. Well after that easy one last week, A B-17 I figured I would try and toughen it up a wee bit.

For anybody who is wondering the cockpits so far have been.

Week 1- DC-3
Week 2- DC-6
Week 3- B-17

Well here is this weeks cockpit....Good luck!

Just a guess, maybe a Curtis C-46 though I highly doubt it. It's gotta be somethin with an all glass front end, probably World War 2 era, but not sure about it.

Hmmm.. I maybe going out on a limb here, but me thinks it is a Heinkel He-111.

Though the Millenium Falcon would be my second guess but I cannot find the controls for the hyperspace drive anywhere. Plus the stack of King Silver Crowns throws me off a bit too.  Smile

Hi!

It's the CASA 2-111 cockpit, spanish version of the HE111, I say this because I can see at least one of the props in the right with from that huge RR Merlin!

I have a couple of more modern ones I am planning to put up later, Sushka.

But I really am trying to get odder ones. It is kind of dull arguing if a cockpit is from a A-319 or a A-321.

Keep up the guesses guys!!!

I, too, think it's a Heinkel 111. The only other planes I can think of with such all-glass cockpits are the Ju-88 (too square) and the B-29/B-50 (too big). I cannot confirm my Heinkel guess, as none of the pictures I have of the plane match the picture exactly. I am unfamiliar with the CASA bird, but CV990 seems to know what he's talking about and strikes me as being much more familiar with WWII warbirds than I am. Seems like most respondents are at least in the right ballpark.

He-111

Here's why:
The Ju-88 glass nose has a more hemisperic forward end.
Fw-189 - the prominent crook down is missing
B-29 - should be MUCH bigger and have totally different instumentation layout
Il-4 - in the foremost nose, there is only the navigator's place
Er-2 - again only the navigator is sitting there and the layout is different

Well I guess we are ready to reveil the answer to this weeks quiz..........IT IS Han Solo's famous mount....The Millenium Falcon!!!















Just kidding.... Laugh out loud

It is the Confederate Air Forces Casa 2-111. Which was a licensed version of the Heinkel He 111. This aircraft can be seen at the CAF Hanger on Falcon Field in Mesa, AZ. It is painted up to resemble a Luftwaffe A/C. I have a spark plug out of this A/C somewhere. It is a trip well worth it.......

See you all with the next airplane next week.

One of the many types of aircraft that made the British produced 1969 motion picture 'Battle of Britain' one of the two best military air battle movies ever produced, to my way of thinking. The aircraft is the CASA 2111 which was built under license to Heinkle Aircraft of Germany.
The German bomber version was the Heinkle 111 and was produced in the form of various models...the earliest production model being an airliner...which was probably just a thin disguise as Germany was gearing up for war.

If your wondering what the other great all time aviation/military type movie was TORA! TORA! TORA!
TORA also had the advantage of a much better script and two producing countries...Japan and the United States.

Hey L-188:

If I might make a suggestion, change the name of the picture to something cryptic before you post it. Anyone can right click on the picture and select properties, where the file name is shown!

Makes it alot more interesting!  Innocent
