    Which Nav-Station is this?
    From: David Pike
    Date: 2018 Jun 18, 01:24 -0700

    There are some nice photos of the B52 nav-station here plus a shot of the Kollsman Sextant if your RAM can cope with the megabytes (my 2Gb struggles).  https://szextant.blogspot.com/2014/06/102-boeing-b-52h-stratofortress-buff.html However, the real gem is the sixth photograph down which gives an excellent shot of the working , bottom, side of the Astrograph Mk1a along with an air position indicator, the side of what looks like a Mk2 Gee set (or it might be LORAN (they had the same dimensions)), and the Gee aerial tuning unit.   One thing’s for certain; it’s definitely not of the nav-station in a B29 as claimed.  There’s an ice cream for the first person to say which aircraft’s nav-station it is.  DaveP
