A Real Jet’s Starfighter-like Cockpit

Perhaps the best Space Opera starfighter cockpit ever created in a real jet fighter. This interior shot of the F-106 jet is straight out of a Sci-Fi movie. Duel handle control stick, glowing scanner window, radar screen and lots of gauges and knobs.

This is another, pilot’s eye view of the dashboard. I’m telling you, Starbuck could jump right in this and start battling Cylons.

Doesn’t that look like some kind of Viper cockpit from Battlestar Galactica? I’ve seen many fighter cockpits, including currently flying military ones and none hold a candle to the awesomeness of this old jet.

Here’s the left side of the cockpit wall showing the throttle, I believe.

This is the F-106 Delta Dart in flight. A beautiful bird then and now. Once a defender of the Free World, now used primarily as a target drone.
