About a year ago (April 04') I was on an AA MD
) and I thought that they were VERY strict about photographers but the crew was nice and even moved so that I could take a picture of the exit door, someone asked... But at the end of the flight I went up to the flight deck and talked with the f/o who was alone in the a/c and he talked to me about the MD
-80 and their bulk numbers over at AA
and at the end of our little talk he allowed me to take a picture of the cockpit.
Photos taken that day were of low quality (Nikon Coolpix 3200) but if needed just ask and I will find them and post them.
Maybe it's b/c I can pass as a kid...
