Curious arrangement of throttle positions, crosswind compensation perhaps?

Thrust levers are not level with each other (staggered) probably to maintain same N1/EPR value on each engine. See how all the needles on the center console are pointing more or less in the same direction. Would not be the case had all the thrust levers been on the same setting. This usually happens when some of the engines are older than the others, or maybe some mechanical glitch on the thrust lever system itself.

Beautiful picture. Didn't think there were flight deck shots of MK 747SP's on this site. Keep 'em coming :)

Wow, is this the old SAA crew filling in for MK or is it the original Air Mauritius crew.
