Clocks in CockpitsI was so pleased to find a working clock in the Mustang cockpit I thought it was 'time' for a mini survey...
Clock testing proceeds apace. No effort is spared.
SuperMarine Spitfire Mk IX
No clock at all! Can you believe it!
Messerschmidt BF-109 has a lovely clock - A lovely timepiece... precision craftmanship.
Lockheed P-38 Lightning
Peter "Murdock" Robbins informs me "you can actually hear the "ticking" of the clock in the BF-109. Watch the clock closely and turn your sound up a little....... I was taken aback by that initially. I do not know if it is the same in the other models - that or the frequency of the other engines drowns it out."
