    These were installed on the Wellington,Lancaster,Halifax and Sterling bombers

    Ordered one! Great find, Colander.

    I don’t expect it will have any practical feasibility on my HOTAS system, but it’ll be cool just to have it on hand in my virtual cockpit.

    It's just a momentary on-off push button, similar to this:

    To make a "game controller, just wire their contacts in one USB controller, e.g. a cheap (~$5) Arduino PRO Micro + MMjoy2 firmware.
