Lockheed EC-121T Warning Star (cockpit)

@Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado Springs

December 2013

Another interior view of the EC-121T cockpit.  Centerpiece of the Peterson AFB Museum collection, this Warning Star was delivered to the museum directly after retirement in 1978 and the interior is virtually unchanged from its last flight.  Delivered in January 1955, this aircraft saw duty in the US and in Asia before finishing its career in Iceland. Used as an airborne early warning radar surveillance aircraft, this was a military version of the Lockheed Super Constellation airliner. Photographed with Nikon D300 and processed with Photomatix.

  1. I can almost smell the scent of iron and old leather. Good shot!
