Flight Engineer's station. Interesting, I didn't know the pilots did not control the engine power, they had to communicate commands to the flight engineer to operate the throttles.

Nice pictures. I have had an opportunity to step inside her.

Also, Doc (based in Wichita, KS) has just gotten her flight certification from the FAA. She will be joining Fifi soon!

Yeah, she's here in Phoenix a lot. Both I and my youngest have 'prowled' through her several times.

Yeah, easy for you to do you live pretty close now. Must have driven passed it a dozen times (on my way to somewhere else) and never made time for a visit, d'oh.
