A mechanic inside the F4F-4 Wildcat White 2 cockpit at Henderson Field, Guadalcanal, 2 February 1943.

A good closeup of a Wildcat's cockpit and the aircraft's captain on Guadalcanal. Although this F4F displays 19 Japanese flags, it is doubtful that it flew with these since such a large scoreboard would have attracted unwanted attention from the Japanese. Note the reflector gunsight inside the windscreen.
