    If you look closely at the pilots control column there is a label on the dash behind the left hand control grip that says.........'Flying Fortress' and slightly below that and to the left is the Boeing Data Plate.

    This is a B-17G panel... and this photo is wonderful... you can get it on eBay lifesize for about 100 dollars... I have it... along with a re-created actual panel that "equis3" makes for museums... he posts them on eBay also - the poster is sold by another dealer... and if one has an interest, the Smithsonian at Udvar Hazy at Dulles IAD sells a wonderful B-29 Cockpit photo of the Enola Gay that they used one of the 360 degree cameras to take...
