    If the concorde cockpit is small, then imagine for example the one from the starfighter ;)

    We had the shop painted a while back, so time for some different artwork for the walls...

    [​IMG]

    These are posters associated with an airshow that I used to work security for, from around 1983 to 1998. They hired an artist to make the posters, and they were printed by a local company. My wife's employer at the time used to get printing done by the same printing company that made these posters for the show, and the printing company used to have a signing event with the artist there for their customers, and we went a few times. Both these are signed by the artist...

    superb photo of a RAF navigator checking a sextant and wearing two wrist watches onboard a Short Sunderland flying boat.
    These flying boats were both used in anti-submarine, to attack U-boats on the surface, and in SAR - Search And Rescue missions.

    Any of you fly boys know why he is wearing two watches? There seems to be one big and one small any idea what they are?

    As he's holding a sextant I would guess is that one runs in sidereal time. That would cut out one stage of the calculations following taking a sun-sight.
