Remember the Sonar 184 consoles of the 70/80's had coffe cup holders, ashtrays (built in), Upmarket rolls of 4"x 2" and the Sonar Contoller often had one of those stylish clips in his pocket to put all of his chinagraph pens in. I suppose they could afford them on a UC1's rate of pay.

Brought back a long-forgotten memory of those occasional condensation/hydraulic oil drips landing right down the back of my neck whilst sat at the after planes for many a black-lighting middle, :shudder:

(The most comfortable seat aboard though.)

I thought that to begin with, but when you're wearing gloves bigger than fearnoughts you need big buttons. You don't want to press the wrong one!
