Sorry for this stupid question but is it just the angle that makes the windshield on captain's side not reflecting the light unlike other glass pieces? I doubt they would fly without it..or is unusually visible captain enjoying the open skies?

I think it is there since the window underneath has the same reflectivity at close to the same angle. I have heard of pilots in my former C-130 unit talk about flying with the swing window (the one immediately aft of the one in question) open. Most of the windblast was deflected around the fuselage instead of through the cockpit.
