Tomorrow, a friend of mine is giving me a tour of a couple FedEx jets, and I was hoping to get some good pictures of the inside cabin, cargo compartment, and the flight deck. I was wondering if anybody had any helpful tips for camera settings, use of flash, hotshoe, tripod or anyother tips??
Thanks four your help.

A great way to capture interiors is at night....cameras don't like dealing with two primary light sources (daylight/artificial). You must choose your primary light source,...artificial or ambient daylight. Interior shots come out better at night when using onboard lighting as primary source.
Best at night if crew can give you power for onboard lights as primary light source...use time exp/ w tripod, low iso settings and shutter release cable.Daytime,... avoid flash shots inside unless you combine with ambient light/ flash as fill source...If cargo bay has few windows ask for onboard lighting and time expose...no flash...usually those interiors are well lit and outside light is minimal through door and exit windows....close cockpit door...
I just set color temp on auto and/or use gray card if you have one.
On time exposures, set long exp noise reduction ON.
Reduce contrast setting if you can.
Cockpit shots day...use exp lock on outside exp, then bounce flash...
night cockpit..pretty much same as above or time exp..
Any way...at work...probably confused you...ask away if any ?'s
