Toward the back of the pedestal there on the left side is a red panel that says "DANGER" with what looks like a glass cover. I have only noticed this panel in this specific picture. All the other pictures of the A380 cockpits lack this panel. So, what is it?

Probably an initiator for the emergency escape system on the #1 test aircraft. I'm not positive but I'd guess they need to depressurize before bailing out and this is accomplished by blowing a hole in the hull somewhere.

Seriously? Such measurements exist? Chances are that when I'm walking off an aircraft, I'll have the paperwork with me. The only information that would really need to be protected is the crew name list, which can be excluded easily. If no one takes the paperwork home, it usually makes its way into a regular garbage bag – not shredded, that is.
