Jon sent in a picture of his B747 IBL/EM1 Overhead with the new Fire Handles installed.
We had the pleasure of Jon's presence in the shop two weeks ago while we worked on a B747-400 FBT that we are completing in the shop.
Jon has done a huge amount of work on the PM SYSTEMS end of things to push the functionality level way up. Watching Jon work was great as he is a true whiz and really knows his way around.
The B747FBT is a much more versatile training unit with his work. The Project Magenta software package really did the job and we are test flying the setup with ease. Really great to see this.
Thanks again to Jon for jumping in and rolling up his sleeves.

Thanks guys. To be honest, the only thing I made was the box frame to hold the panels and the start switches. Everything else reflects PC's genius.

Way too humble this guy....
You give Jon parts and he comes back with the entire overhead acting like a B747. Logic and all. Enrico could use his work and push the B747 far far ahead. It was awesome watching all the systems alive in the B747FBT here.
Bonus that Jon had the same setup at his end. Really amazing work on all of that. Engine Start switches are his own devices as well btw.
