This WWII-era P-39Q Bell Airacobra instrument panel reside in the collection of our friend Charles Darby of New Zealand.
According to Charles:
"I know nothing of the history of this Aircobra other than that it was recovered in New Guinea in the early 1970s. The bomb release pull-toggle fitting at the bottom of the panel appears to be a feature of very late-model P-39Qs."
