If anyone seen Discovery wings lately they restored 4 190 f8s found in finland and one is white 1 flown by Hienz Orlowski, hes the only german pilot who was reunited with the plane he flew in the war.

Discovery wings has about a 40 min documentary of him and him meeting up with his plane, he checked every piece of the plane pushing in all panel edges checking the guns latches nose and they had alot of cockpit views and that bar is under the site and flush with the top of the instrument panel glare cover and not visable from the cockpit even when looking from above.

I suggest someone gets a video capture of the video the proof is more then evident but I dont care if oleg and 1c dont even look at it.

Its some great footage and to see hienz's face in the cockpit smiling seeing him go back in time is something everyone must see.

I did see it...it was awesome, regardless of the "bar issue", I thought it was a great documentary. The look on his face sitting in that cockpit said it all.

I'm not promoting the bar issue, just the Texas Air Museum and the nice people that work there.
