Saw those, LOL must be the ghia, it also has pilot and co-pilot on the tags on the seats, as if they didn't know where to sit...

Do like the 360 degree stuff tho....

Look at that old laptop. You'd have thought they'd have better kit.

If you look up,there's an "entertaiment" feature in the roof console.Might be the CD player. :)

The big handles near the windows must be for the wing mirrors.

Great views, but I wonder if all Airbus (and other modern airliner pilots are left handed?)

I ask this because I fly with the joystick in the copilots position (on the right) I could not use it with my left hand without stacking the aircraft into the ground....Looks like I would always be in the right hand seat :((

"I wonder if all Airbus (and other modern airliner pilots are left handed?)"

Don't know, but most of them are left legged.

It's a fairly well documented phenomenon that most big aeroplanes touch down left leg first.

You can confirm this for yourself if you watch the next few tv shots you see of airliners landing.

The 380 (and other modern airliners) will land itself, as long as the correct equipment is installed at it's destination.

I know from hours of flying in Flight SImX, that I can not fly anything left handed. Of course back in the "Old" day's, when aircraft were controlled using cables connected to the column, the control yoke was centrally positioned. This was a lot easier :)

I will never call airline pilots "glorified bus-drivers" again.
