It is very interesting that the Skyknight did not have ejector seats for the crew of two, but an escape tunnel between the two seats.

Kind of scary when you think about it, if the aircraft is in trouble and the crew had to unbelt, manuver out of their seats and slide out the excape tunnel, exiting under the aircraft.

Good thing is that airplane look like very stable so unless it is heavy hit, it is possible to use classic way to leave airplane. But that was just option, ejection seat is much much better. On image show is visible dark panel areas where will be instruments.

Little interior works. I make a mess with instrument panel but have correct it later. Clamp over fuselage half's is just dry run.
