East Fortune Me 163B 191659

Great view of the right forward corner of the cockpit, showing part of the instrument panel and the electrical switch box. The left upper corner of the picture shows a 'Machwarnung' (Mach warning) instrument, that is not covered in the 1944 operating manual. The rear row of switches of the electrical switch box controls FuG 25 (IFF system, underwing antenna), FuG 16 (radio and ground control, Morane antenna on the spine), Staurohr (pitot tube heating) and a fourth one.
