Help: Need Photo of Boeing P26 Pilot Seat

Found lots of photos on-line of the Boeing P26 Peashooter cockpit. Can't find any with a photo of the pilot seat.

Working on a project and since it doesn't have a full canopy needing to find photos of the seat to make one.

Does anyone have a link or photos of the seat area?

Thank you for any help you can provide.

Mike

There's a display at the Smithsonian Udvar-Hazy Center. I would recommend that you reach out to their research department and let them know what you're looking for. They have, in the past been accommodating to my research by providing copies or links to their archive of photos and documentation. You might get lucky and they have some cockpit photos done during the restoration for display process.

There's a plane at the AF museum in Dayton too. Maybe they have it where a docent or helpful assistant can get a snap shot for you.

Yes, total fun! Found what I needed with the 360deg virtual view. Looks like they used the butt style parachutes.

Thank you for the link.
