Oh my god, I just LOVE this plane! On the captain´s side you can see the full format navigation display, F/O´s side shows the engine parameters and the system page, lower screen shows the CDU and the COMM page with actual METAR and TAF we received at that moment. And of course both head-up displays hinged down.

Beautiful lighting, I've seen many 787 cockpit photos but this one really stands out, and your thorough remark makes it even better! Well done Thomas.

I see that the seat adjustment is now infinitely variable. The old ones had a simple pin that engaged the seat track at several points. The pin seems safer to me. Once engaged it's pretty safe and highly unlikely to shear. I don't think it's ever happened that I've heard of. But this rack and pinion design seen here, if it fails the seat could translate aft during takeoff. Electric adjusters on aircraft seats are unnecessary added weight. It takes about three seconds to manually slide the seat into position. If a pilot isn't strong enough to manually adjust their seat then they probably couldn't pass the physical exam anyway.

Looks awesome and the peripheral vision is amazing. The pilots must feel like there are almost floating in space.

Awesome photo that clearly demonstrates the 787's beautiful and spacious cockpit! This shows just one more reason why the 787 is a " game changer." There is no other airliner that even comes close to competing with this.

Amazing display of technology...however, at the end of the day it's the captain's hands what count...

787 flightdeck!I always was a big fan of the MD11 flightdeck but man boeing nailed it with this one.
When the 787 outside was like the A350 it was the ultimate a/c.

The best photo of the best commercial cockpit ever devised. But if I were a Boeing customer with the money for one (or more) of these, I would not consider the aircraft complete unless it had thermal imaging for its HUDs. Only then could the cockpit, and the plane, be considered perfect and worth every penny of its price. Thank you for the outstanding photograph of this outstanding airplane.

Are you a pilot? I saw your other cockpit pic. I really want to be in cockpit one day. Did you ask a pilot of this plane?
