Very good thread, Deepakbhai.
I've seen a couple of cockpits in my life - A320 and an old 737. Was confusing with all those controls, but, fun.
For me the most interesting bit of air travel is the take off. Absolutely love it when the aircraft accelerates.
What I'm really unhappy about is that I never got to travel by my dream aircraft - the most amazing aircraft of them all, the Concorde! Very sad.

Wow!! What an opportunity to get to see something which is normally out of bounds for us. Seeing the cockpit and then sitting at the wheel in our car, sigh!!

I am so glad you guys enjoyed the pictures. As I was enjoying myself around these gorgeous birds I knew many here at TBHP would enjoy the pictures too. These trade shows do take up a lot of your time and as it was a working day for me I couldn't spend more time, else I would have managed some inside shots of the private jets too

It was a pleasure sharing them with you gentlemen

Thanks DKG, for this up close look. Most of us never get this kind of opportunity.

airbus has an airplane named the beluga.often referred to as the super transporter.(guessing you knew that and feel the 380 should be called that instead)

Cheers,
yeah they all have a function.

Was searching the forum for airplane threads and came across this. I know its quite an old thread, but awesome snaps DKG!

On a side note, has anyone experienced the new 787?

Amazing snaps, Thanks for the virtual tour Deepak. I guess most people are fascinated with the fact that man can fly free like a bird. Just love the feeling when you're taking off, with the thrust of those massive engines, and being one with the skies.
