It's Time To Play..... Otterflogger's "Name That Cockpit"!

OK, "Ladies and Gentlemen", time for "installment #56" in our "cockpit series", which will be a continuing "brain-strainer".

This is the "cockpit" of "the" ......................



This is the cockpit of the BAE "Nimrod" AEW3. The "Nimrod" is a maritime patrol aircraft developed in the United Kingdom. It is an extensive modification of the de Havilland Comet, the world's first jet airliner. It's duties were also expanded to include "AEW" (Airborne Early Warning), which in effect is an aircraft equipped with a radar system which is designed to detect other aircraft. It was originally designed by de Havilland's successor, Hawker Siddeley, now part of BAE Systems. 8 semis of "sailboat fuel" up for grabs next week!
