Throttle Quadrant

By on July 5, 2010 in B17 Page 1

The throttle quadrant between the pilot and copilot. This one looks like new-old stock.

Recommendations for appropriate indicated airspeeds to and from the target can be read in a larger version of the photo.

    great picture !
    would it be possible to get the larger version of this photo as mentioned ?
    Do you have other snapshots so as to read the very last line of the “Power settings” ?

    In this slightly enlarged crop of the photo, one can read the throttle settings.

    The throttle setting to the target is 155 indicated air speed, returning from target is 140 indicated air speed.

    I have an original B-17G throttle quadrant with auto pilot, manifold controls, and formation stick controls for sale. Anyone interested?

    Mike, my wife would take a dim view, but I’ll bet that there are any number of people that would be interested. If you wish, I’ll post this on a sister site to this one. It gets a lot of visitors from around the globe.
