    Not just aircraft, that's fuselage of a bomber sized flying boat, maybe even amphibious. That would take a more serious building than 'normal' aircraft!
    Yup, recognized it, as former nut on aviation. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Short_Sunderland

    Far more beneficial post than a Short Sunderland workers wisecrack, as I often descend in to.

    Former as in less intense than ages 6 thru 30 something.
    Sleeping under flight deck catapults of Enterprise cured me. After a small fire (not 1969) we moved aft awhile, under the arresting gear. No improvement.

    That's still a large airplane. Larger than a Hercules.

    Don't recall such a nose-on view of a P-61; showing the fuselage is far narrower and deeper than assumed.

    That would explain it; even looked to be enough glass for a pilot position.
