Typical English pastoral setting, no (UHF?) aerial atop the cabin, no Technical Data Block, G-BAGT for sure.

That's pretty awesome.  Now I'd like a full report on that tail-wheel setup they have.

I think I still have some left over new bumpers.  I'll check and let you know.

I sometimes confuse bumpers with seals. Seals are on backside of slats and bumpers inside wing as stops for the torque tubes.  When JAARS was doing our annuals they always stressed the importance of the seals and always replaced missing or loose pieces.  We noticed that missing seals could cause a bit of flutter in the slat that was sometimes visible in the camera. We also noticed rubbing on the wing from slats without seals. BTW if anyone has a couple of bumpers please let me know or know the material and dimensions so we can make a couple. Thanks

Hi Guys-  The photo you have captioned #1709 is H22.  On the H22 panel- (The Panel put together by Pima County Sherriffs Department)  This panel was built with the Allison 250 up front.  The configuration was, I think, unique to them.  The aircraft was supporting and aerial surveillance camera system with IR.  Also a LoJack system of antennae on the belly and monitor inside.  The airplane was flown on missions with single pilot in left seat forward, no co-pilot seat.  The backseater right side "flew" the camera and had control screen and monitor in front of him with hs own radio sets to communicate with ground and intercom to pilot.
   On the panel forward is Garmin 480.  Next is Blue Mountain screen with all flight data, various selectable screens for terrain, etc.  Center is VGA screen which was used to display camera out info (information only- you can plug anything into that-inflight movie?)  Next right is engine graphic info, fuel, flaps, elevator trim, etc, plus data history. Torque and fuel condition levers in center.  Keep in mind it is set up for single pilot in left seat.  If I designed one myself I think I prefer radios in center stack so right seater can help if required.  I am used to it now and it is fine.  Otherwise I am still an old steam gage sort of guy.
   Doug- nice photos- many nice panels.  I still have to come up with something for #1709.  The old panel  I thought was beautiful but when they started refurbishing it at Tucson they removed the panel for upgrade but the whole project got stopped so there is no panel.
