Maybe one of you have a photo rat holed away? The center cockpit on the O-47 was for the co-pilot/cameraman/observer. The side walls of his compartment have a number of finger type spring clips along each side. What do the flares look like?

THX, Mike

I have some photos for you

They are color interior shots and two of typical WWII flares that look like they would fit the clips. They are not for sure what was in the O-47 but since the services used similar equipment across aircraft types you can't go too far wrong here.
I will e-mail them.

wish I could get a clear copy/print of the lower interior one. All my attempts are so blurred as to be useless.

How big are the clip openings?

Flares used for "reconnoitering" are anywhere from 4.75 to 8 inches in diameter.

Now the army did have a smaller one that could be fired from a pistol and was only 2 inches in diameter
