I am continuing to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Jerrie Mock's 1964 world flight by showing another of my "never-before-seen" images from a private photo shoot of her Skywagon "Charlie" or, technically, N1538C.

I conducted the shoot under the watchful eye of Smithsonian security in 2005 at the NASM's Steven Udvar-Hazy Center, and want to thank Dorothy Cochran of NASM - another fan of Jerrie and Charlie - for setting up the shoot.

Today's image gives you a close look at Charlie's fuel system control panel. View the image here:
