In this day and age where you can't get close to the cockpit, how do some of ya'll take some of these amazing pictures? Excuse my ignorance if it's such a simple answer. But these pictures during take-offs and landings are great. Thanks for posting!

Most I imagine are airline employees who are authorized to occupy the flight deck jumpseat/s and have asked the Captain for permission and received permission to snap pics or take videos during the flight.
Any views shared are strictly my own and do not a represent those of any former employer.

Usually, it's somebody who is part of the flight crew (ie, the captain or first officer) Or somebody who knows either of these people very well. Joe Average doesn't get anywhere near a cockpit nowadays, unfortunately.
