    Following up on the B-29 cockpit link I previously posted, here's a similar 360 degree view of a P-51 Mustang cockpit.

    Thanks Brian. Very neat. Almost makes you think you are sit'n in the pilots seat. That pilots seat don't look real comfy.

    Not really much different that the seat in Vietnam era fighters. The reason there is no padding on the back of the seat is that your parachute fits in there and the para pack becomes the seat back.

    Thanks for posting, very cool.

    Ran, nice looking 'stang, but it ain't even close to being in the same league as plane

    Cat, you may be right but it has more power then I can handle. Now isn't that a similar thrill to flying?

    Yeah I guess but I would rather have a shot at the stick on the P 51 airplane, they are bad A$$

    Is there an aiming reticle somewhere? I do not see how they lined up the guns. Neat picture.

    "Is there an aiming reticle somewhere?"

    They took the bead off as your not supposed to look at the barrel just the target. Your gun should shoot where your looking. Remember? LOL
