More of No.1 BFTS

Here are a few more pictures from the BFTS museum.

Below is the patch worn by the instructors at the school. It is based upon the wings worn by the Royal Air Force with a star for Texas and a shield bearing the acronym BFTS.

Here is a WWII flight simulator and a close up of the controls.

I have no idea what this is. Can anyone help? I can tell I probably wouldn't be able to work it. I didn't see an on/off button switch or a reset button.

I have a few more I will post tomorrow. Mr. Madgwick let me photograph whatever I wanted. If anyone has memories, stories, pictures or anything they would like to donate to the museum drop me an email and I can get you in touch with the museum, or you can give them a call 972-524-1586.
