Question about F-4B/N RIO Control Stick

Recommended Posts

The Radar Control Stick retracted a little down and forward (toward the front of the aircraft, away from the RIO). It remained in the same orientation (stick pointing up) and you're correct, it was to the right of the scope just in front of the RIO's right knee. That's why it retracted, so he could get out in a hurry without needing a peg leg after he got back on the ground. The Radar Control Panel on the left side also retracted but it just pivoted on the top front edge and tilted in a little.
