    DC-9 cockpit

    192.jpg

    I have been making progress on my cockpit. Mostly cleaning out the accumulated dirt and wires from the section. Windows have been installed and all the cuts made to the fuselage. A trailer was made to transport the cockpit to various avaition related events.

    Thanks Claus
    I am always interested in talking to other DC-9/MD-80 enthusiasts.....or should I say builders? anyways how is your project going? I'd like to
    know are you building a DC-9 or MD-80ish cockpit? I want to work on trying to see if I can get the overhead panel to light up........any help would be great. The overhead is complete and was literally taken right out of the a/c

    I have a DC-8-31 cockpit. I am also the only person to have this type I look forward to seeing your updates.

    Thanks I did visit your site. How is your DC-8 project going? Are you restoring it to the period it last flew?

    Re: DC-9 cockpit

    Perry,
    For the most part that is my goal. Its in storage 400 miles from me, so ive done little to it the last four years other than collect some parts like the seats. It think I just found a low profile trailer that I can mount it to so that it is "mobile", mobile with permits and an escort that is.

    I purchased an overhead start panel with the ejector switches (for turbojet sound surpression), I never thought I would be able to find one of those.

    Ive flown a level D DC-8-70 series sim and was amazed at how hard the DC-8 is to fly! Its the only airliner sim I couldnt land. Im sure a DC-9-31 is much more sporty to fly. Im glad to see youre going with a classic DC-9.

    Re: DC-9 cockpit

    Thanks, yes but all Douglas birds are classey in my opinion. I flew the DC-8-63 when Air Canada and Cp-Air were still around....fond memories. Have ever considered cutting it down to a more manageable load like mine? Would save you escort fees and you could work on it inside if it was smaller....just thoughts that I'm sure you have considered already. Looking at the section on your site it is BIGGG.

    Re: DC-9 cockpit

    I already have smaller sims, I like the DC-8 cockpit because it is big. Plus there are so few Dc-8s being saved, this will end up being one of the few nose sections around.

    Re: DC-9 cockpit

    Do you have pics of the DC-9 your panels came from?
