    Just for fun, test your observation skills and / or knowledge!
    Imagine you are a Line Chief, tasked with replacing the part(s) shown in the following pictures. You need to first identify the part, and second, which aircraft it is on / from.
    Below are ten images, numbered 1 to 10, in a small box within each image. All of these have been posted as complete pictures in the 'Cockpit Fest' thread elsewhere on the forum, although some might not be at exactly the same angle.
    First Prize is a night out with a Hippocroccofrog. Second Prize is a weeks holiday with a Hippocroccofrog, all at your own expense!
    Answers next Monday, 28th June.

    So the missing part is in the black box or its somewhere on the picture?

    I'm really bad as I don't recognize anything!

    I'm waiting for the contest where the first prize is an Owner's Manual for Dropbears.

    Hell's Teeth ! It's a simple observation exercise!
    Look at the Cockpit Fest thread, recognise shapes, lighting, colours etc, and you're home and dry! If you're fairly good, you should do it without seeing the other thread!
    Jeez! Thirteen year old ATC cadets would p*ss this!!!!

    Don't you go talking about Wild.... those things!
    Now, how do you know Aaron got it right? There might be the odd mistake or two.
    Remember, there's at least one beautifully slimey, slithery, obese Hippocroccofrog waiting for the person with the most corrcet answers!!!
    Someone has to win!!
