The whitish oval is the pilot's wheel; the lower right-hand bend frames the Sensitive Altimeter. The vertical object on the viewer's side of the wheel has not yet been identified:

Hi All

Thought i would post this image, As i think it's too random that these objects appear to be the same dimensions.

Thanks Richie

Now that I've been able to dabble in artistic presentation (LOL), allow me to present various cockpit features (all from frame 13:41:53;21) in a broader visual context, namely that part of the cockpit that is visible through the open hatch:

Definitely a metal piece, Richie, but I'm pretty sure that HF Radio Remote sits in the knee panel in the cockpit (see Reply #117).

Tim--

I'm curious whether you or anyone else have spotted evidence of the superframe nearby?

I'm not sure of this one, Hatch. But the angle pointed to by the red arrow looks suspiciously like the acute angles that are shown in the lightening holes in the Main Beam in the Harney drawings (which I can't reproduce here until Ric can post them).

Here's an actual photo of the Main Beam.

Tim--

Kind thanks. Plentiful flat, platy surfaces and unnatural angles in view here. Wish we knew more about coral and salt water corrosion of aluminum vs. ferrous metallic items in such an environment. To me at least, it would help to know this.  :-\

Hatch, I see in the photo Ric just posted that the same angles are present in the visible rib of the right wing. Hard to tell...

This aircraft has been in 125 feet of water in a coral atoll lagoon for 70 years.  There is some corrosion in areas where dissimilar metals are joined and, for some reason, where oil was present.  But otherwise the aluminum exhibits minimal corrosion and very little coral growth.

Here's another view of the cockpit, from almost straight "above" (relative to the normal attitude of an airplane):

Hi All

I Believe the object with white lines on is some kind of hatch cover.

On the left side you can make out L shaped hinge straps an if you look in middle you can see what appears to be handle lock catch.

Also look at the right edge of object an below it how smooth it look's

Thank's Richie

O an check out the A shaped object underneath  :)

See below image Richie.  You see how ones eyes can cheat themselves as to what they see down there.  This image appears to be a woman wearing a v necked white shirt and tank top underneath.  No of course that isn't what it appears to be.  This is from the image you posted below.
