We're getting pretty proud of
this folks, in fact we are beginning to think this tips the ol'
spiffy meter quite high. That's me(Gene Buckle) in the cockpit.
Rob Hommel is looking on - he's afraid that I will break
something. Notice the exterior paint the color matches that of
the exterior of a F-15A block 16. Yes, the two objects hanging on
the wall behind Rob are the throttle/thrust reversers from a 747.
A couple of interior shots. As
you can see we are still under construction. The walls are
constructed of hardboard 1/8 inch thick. The side and center
panels are 1/2 inch plywood covered with hardboard and painted to
match the interior paint scheme of the F-15. The instrument panel
and side consoles are temporary coverings, instruments and
switches are next on the agenda. The joystick will be recessed
into the side console to the proper height. The side consoles are
within a 1/2 inch of the width of the F-15 side consoles. The
instrument panel is about 4 inches larger than the F-15 in height
and width. Interior dimensions are well within tolerance.
Oh yes, we do have some
additional seats available. Not of the same style shown but
aircraft seats from several different aircraft, not all have been
identified. If you are interested we would be willing to part
with them, contact me for details.
