Convair NC-131H



The Convair NC-131H was a modified transport aircraft. In addition, this aircraft contains two noses. The first nose is a two-place cockpit from which onboard computers simulated the handling characteristics of various aircraft. It provided a large field of view and contained reconfigurable controls and instrument displays. The original cockpit carried two safety pilots who monitored the simulations and could take control in case of a problem. Also, this aircraft was used to perform the Synthetic Vision research.
