Aermacchi MB339-CB



Taken at Whenuapai, March 17, 2001. Forward cockpit - pilot's eye level view. This gives a good idea of the view forward as framed by the windscreen. Thatıs James McMillan standing to the left - one of the very helpful 14 Squadron personnel who showed me over the aircraft. On the penel. at the left is the clock, with miscellaneous indicators on the panels along the edge of the coaming. The trim, speed brake and flap indicators are above the red 'jettison' button. Next to these is the multifunction display screen , with the weapon control panel below. In the centre of the panel are the airspeed and attitude indicators, and the navigation control panel. Over to the right beneath another display unit are the accelerometer, altimeter, and vertical speed indicator. Under the standby attitude indicator are the tachometer, jet pipe temperature, and the fuel flow gauge. On the very right are is the anti-ice and oxygen panel, the fuel gauge, and oil pressure gauge. On the right edge of the coaming is the compass.
