Cockpit Cruising

A pilot’s life is not always stressful..:) Sometimes, one has to lean back a bit and enjoy the clouds beneath the plane.


I took this photograph enroute from Düsseldorf to Dresden, this is the Cockpit of a Bombardier Canadair Jet 700.
How do you like it ? Did you ever fly on the jumpseat ? Let me know in the comments. Visit my “photo bucket” for some more shots !

Cheers, AP

    1. Wow, thank you !

      Yeah that is – unfortunately – true, 9/11 made it really hard.
      I have had the luck that one of my relatives was a crew member on that flight – that is one of the rare possibilities left :/
      Thanks for coming around 🙂


  1. War jahrelang Flugbegleiterin, da bleibt das mit dem Jump nicht aus..Aber eines der besten Momente war, als ich mal wieder aus Langeweile vorne im Cockpit saß (737-800) und der Kapitän fragte, ob ich kurz mal am Steuer drehen möchte.. Tat ich dann natürlich und dieses riesige Flugzeug hat sich tatsächlich auf MEIN Lenken hin bewegt;))! Das war echt irre…
