T-6 Texan II, T-6A Cockpit Detail Photos:

 

The photographs in this set were taken in the cockpits of a U. S. Air Force T-6A Texan II and provide a complete and detailed look at the modern displays, controls and Martin-Baker ejection seats.  All are Detail & Scale copyright photographs taken by Bert Kinzey.

The left console in the front cockpit is seen here.  The throttle and propeller controls are near the front of the console, and the landing gear lever is on the instrument panel just above the forward end of the console.  Various circuit breakers and switches are further aft.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)

Details on the right console are shown here.  Again, there are quite a few circuit breakers.  The oxygen supply is at the aft end, and the olive green oxygen hose can be seen extending back to it.  Note also the map and document holders on the side of the cockpit.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)

Both cockpits are covered by a single large canopy that is hinged on the right side.  The schematic for the control grip can be seen again in this view, and there is a small rear view mirror located on the frame of the canopy.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)

The center part of the canopy frame and hinge are shown here.  The cylinders that open and close the canopy are visible on the side of the cockpit.  Note also the ducting for the defogging air running along the edge of the framework.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)

The top of the Martin-Baker ejection seat for the front cockpit is shown here.  The entire seat is black and a very dark gray.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)

The instrument panel in the rear cockpit is shown here from a low angle.  While most of the items are modern multi-function display screens, there are a few basic flying instruments that have been around for decades.  These include a clock, an artificial horizon, and a needle and ball style turn and bank indicator.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)

The consoles in the rear cockpit are not as long as those in the front.  The engine and propeller controls remain the dominate features on the left console.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)

The left console in the rear cockpit is shown here again from the side.  Again note the landing gear control lever just forward of the console.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)

The right console in the rear cockpit has very few switches, but as in the front cockpit, the oxygen supply is at the aft end.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)

An overall view looking aft shows the cover for the instrument panel that divides the two cockpits as well as some of the details of the rear Martin-Baker ejection seat.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)

More details of the rear Martin-Baker ejection seat are shown here.  Note how the harness and the oxygen hose are secured in the rear seat when the aircraft is being flown by only one pilot in the front cockpit.  There are two canopy breakers at the top of the ejection seat.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)
