Actually, that may be closer to the production airplane cockpit than the prototype's, which had a jettisonable canopy and ejection seats because of an AJ-1 crash in flight test that killed the crew. The production cockpit was similar to the A3D's, including the slide.circle-5 said:NAA factory proposal model of the XA2J-1 Turboprop Savage, showing early cockpit glass arrangement.
