I recently switched from working around passenger aircraft to cargo aircraft. The size of the aircraft have increased greatly, but for some reason I just don't get the same feeling I get when around cargo aircraft. They are just so plain, aside from the giant cargo doors and massive empty cargo bays. Here are some things that I think make cargo airliners not as "cool" as pax ones.
*There's no windows - harder to visualize how big it is compared to people's faces; also - no one to watch you work, and/or no one for you to watch and laugh at :p
*Not typically parked close to a building/terminal - since they are on usually on remote stands, it's hard to compare the size to buildings.
Anyone else have any opinion on the matter?
