East Fortune Me 163B 191659

Black and white shot of the cockpit. At that time it was hanging loose; it has a hinge on the right side to allow access to the rear of the panel. The central instrument is missing. According to the 1944 handbook it should be an artificial horizon, with a small 'ball in tube' slip indicator below. It now contains a turn and slip indicator, the origin of which is unknown.
