Re: Jet panel?

This is a link to 360 degree views of many cockpits and interiors. They allow you to sit in the pilot's seat and look around by dragging the cursor and zooming in and out with the mouse wheel. I went through several possibilities but the "more eyes" the better.

Fuel tank indicators often appear on the left hand side.

Here is the F-89J

There are a series of Fuel switches and lights , labeled LH, RH, Tip, InBoard OutBoard, etc on the lower left side, but not the layout of our mystery panel. Also notice how close together they are.

Off-topic but interesting: start in the SPAD XIII, move on to the Boeing P-26A, then to the Supermarine Spitfire and on into the Northrup F-89 or North American F-100. Then to the Lockheed SR-71. You can end your trip in a Space Shuttle trainer.
