1928 Boeing Model 40C

One of the great airmail planes of the 1920s.

Only 10 copies of the Boeing Model 40C were built. Originally used as mailplanes, they later carried passengers. In 2008 Addison Pemberton, in this restored 40C, and two other pilots in vintage mailplanes re-created the cross-country airmail routes of the 1920s.

Photographer Lyle Jansma started creating 360º views of airplane cockpits in 2005, while volunteering at the Heritage Flight Museum in Bellingham, Washington. After a chance encounter with a visitor in a wheelchair, he realized there was no practical way for the visitor to sit in the cockpit of the Museum’s P-51 Mustang. Jansma tried the next best thing: creating a detailed panoramic photo of the interior. Over time, he improved his technique for creating and sharing 360º cockpit views, and since then the Washington-based photographer has taken his camera to other aircraft collections, including the Museum of Flight, Tillamook Air Museum, Evergreen Air & Space Museum, and the National Museum of the Air Force in Dayton, Ohio. The images are available on the ACI Cockpit360º App for iPads and iPhones, and now, in this online gallery. Keep visiting the site (airspacemag.com/panorama), as we'll be adding more of Jansma’s cockpit views each week.
