I recently found a scrap cockpit in a scrap yard, and I'm hoping there's enough remaining to identify the aircraft type from pictures.

Unfortunately, all are taken through fencing as I don't have access to the compound.

    $\begingroup$ I wonder what the line of thought was behind that eyebrow window's particular shape. I bet there was a specific reason for it. $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 6, 2020 at 13:43
