Thanks for the link. I enjoyed it . I took all four virtual tours on the aircraft.
Yeahhhh...I also think it's funny how they call it. In every country of the world, the word "cockpit" is used in aviation isn't it? Either "cockpit" or "flight deck" term is used. I noticed that in the flight engineer's station there is a set of thrust levers in addition to the one situated just between the two pilots.
And I noticed also that the main cabin resembles that of the Boeing 727-200, well yes the TU-154 is the Russian 727.

I like the way they call the cockpit: cabin of pilots
The Russian word for cockpit is кабина which in English is "cabin". I often ask Russian air and flight crew for photos of the aircraft cabin -- and I am always surprised, stupidly, when they send me photos of the flight deck, when what I wanted was the салон.
