    What is the "co-pilot" doing in the first two pictures? What is that wheel for? And I have never seen that piece of structure behind the pilots seat before. Armour?

    Yep, that's the armour shield of the pilot's seat. I have seen a such one used for Do-217J/N. The wheel is the trim wheel of the jack mechanism which controlled the tail plane incidence and pivot. The tail incidence was automatically changed when the landing flaps were lowered, or it could be adjusted manually what we can see in the shots above.

    Just caught up with this thread - thanks for the info on that wheel Wojtek, I always wondered what it was for when seen in the Do-17Z.
