USAF Convair RB-36 Castle Air Museum FlightEng

Castle Air Museum Open Cockpit Day, ie Memorial Day, 2000s-ish. The interior was a mix of yellow zinc chromate tinted to the USAF standard "interior green" color, black and the battered amalgam of old airplanes after being put out to pasture.

There were seats for 2 flight engineers... and 13 handles in that throttle-y looking set in the middle.
