42. Theme 64 ~Controls~

These are the cockpit controls of the last Martin 202 airliner in the world. It is on display at the Aviation Hall of Fame and Museum of New Jersey located in Teterboro, next to Teterboro Airport.   HERE is a link to the Museum.  This particular aircraft was sometimes used as a tour plane chartered by Herman’s Hermits and Eric Burden & the Animals, popular English bands of the 1960’s.  It is now an outdoor museum exhibit which visitors are permitted to board and tour.  I’m sure Captain Sully’s cockpit looked a lot different than this!

  1. There is so much to look at in this photograph yet it is not cluttered and it is very sharp. Great job.

  2. Great selection for the theme – and so timely, too. The detail in these controls is awesome.

  3. Great themed photo.

    And I can barely handle my car. Guess I’ll leave the jets to the real pilots.

  4. Great selection for the theme! And nice photo too.

  5. Gosh a party plane! Janet is right that looks to have been tricky conditions to shoot, good job.

  6. Great shot, Madelaine! Must have been tricky to get such a good exposure with all the bright light from the windows. This would have been a fun shot to try HDR. Herman’s Hermits and Eric Burden and the Animals….if that plane could talk!

  7. What a clear and detailed picture – Madelaine – very cool idea for the theme!
