    A friend of mine found this in a shoe store window in New York City. Any idea what plane it's from?

    My friend who photographed it was also posting looking for an answer and got this back:

    "OK, It's from a Lockheed C-141 Starlifter, Flight Engineers Station.

    I posted it and got a few replies from ex USAF Flight Engineers who recognised it straight away.

    They all said "… I spent hours starting at that panel…"

    How much were they asking for it?

    The C-141 was retired from USAF inventory 9 years ago.

    Cheers"
