(14 Airplane Cockpits)

Well, 10 airplanes and 4 helicopters. Interesting, regardless.

*pans image* Oh god, nobody's flying the plane!

What? We're still on the ground? Phew.

Thank you for this. My dad, who passed away about two years ago, logged over 10,000 hours of flying time in a DC-3. I wish I could share this with him.

Also, from the CRJ-700 cockpit, I'm somehow glad to see that the pilots have the same annoying air blowers as the rest of us.

My dad is going to crap his pants over this.

This is fun. I always marvel as to how much STUFF there is inside a cockpit that you have to know how to use so that a plane doesn't go all wonky in the sky. It's nice to have the time to browse, rather than having to loiter around the flight attendant station when deplaning, furtively getting fleeting glimpses of the cockpit.

My first airshow, my dad and I took a souvenir photo from inside the cockpit of a Blue Angels jet. The photo is of us grinning and giving thumbs up, but my memory is of that glorious cockpit.

Maybe it was due to many hours spent behind the joystick of the Blue Angels DOS game as a child, but I was overwhelmed. I almost forgot to look up at the camera.

Thanks for reminding me of a moment of pure magic.

What are you, some kind of aeronautical engineer? A back seat pi... oh. Carry on.

And here's a cockpit panorama of the B-29 that flew over Hiroshima one bright, sunny day... Enola Gay

Thanks for these links. Amazing!

Yeah but how do I turn the engines on?

To turn the engines on? You just put your lips together and PLBPLBFLBPFLBPFLBPFLBF.
