    Views Of/From Cockpits

    Link: Photographs of Awesome Cockpits | Abduzeedo Design Inspiration & Tutorials



    One of the coolest things when I was a kid was the possibility to visit an airplane's cockpit. All the buttons and the pilots using it were pretty awesome, but the outside view was always breathtaking. Unfortunately today no one is allowed to visit anymore.
    I have never visited the cockpit of a jet in flight or on the ground so I guess this is the closest I will get. However I have been invited on a flight in a light aircraft later this month [looking forward to that]

    I thought that too. But I dismissed it thinking it was just my imagination.

    I think the slightly eerie looking ones are just HDR photos. Which always makes them look a bit false to me!

    As a kid, I've been in the cockpit of a jet during a flight. It was great - more buttons than you could shake a (joy)stick at. It was many years ago - late '70s I would guess - my Dad asked if I could go in and have a look - 'no problem', they said. Times have changed since then.
