Remark Photographer
UR-82060 (cn 19530503763) One of the most unique cockpits in the world. The flightdeck of the Antonov 225 is without a doubt the most spectacular cockpit I have visisted. Check out those six throttle levers, the pilots must get a great sensation when they open the throttle on this giant. The outside view is blocked by the opened nose.

Seen this pic like a hundred times, but watching it again and again.
This is pure awesomeness, some real men needed there to ride this 'Dream'.

A visitor from United States posted Wed September 28, 2011:
Impressive enough, but add the engineer's and navigator's panels too...just amazing that it all works. I love the fans, seems like almost every Russian plane has them, even small ones.

A visitor from United States posted Wed September 28, 2011:
Fantastic, and thanks for sharing this detailed photo- the slight wide angle really helps the perspective.

Antonov's: build some more please!

A visitor from Brazil posted Thu May 26, 2011:
These two little blowers on top of the panel seem to be russian trademark. Note the big ruder pedals, they look funny.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sat October 2, 2010:
Retro..mighty..special...you name it,this cockpit has it all.

Awesome but old !

A visitor from United States posted Wed June 2, 2010:
Ukraine has the most amazing aircraft. The Mighty six engines of the plane produce more than 300,000 lbs. of thrust just to get the plane going

***This is actually the most significant achievement of the ukrainian aircraft design school***

Your statement is incorrect,there is no such a thing as "ukrainian aircraft design school",this aircraft was built in Soviet Union by Soviet Union. It would be unfair to call this aircraft "ukranian".

Cheers

Just awesome!

A visitor from Germany posted Sat January 30, 2010:
This bird had its first flight nearly 2 years after the A320! Just wondering if you can actually move all throttle levers with one hand.

A visitor from - posted Sat November 14, 2009:
I think it needs an fms.... if it doesn't already. a 5 man crew? holy cow. truly the titanic of the sky.

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 31, 2009:
It is old (late 70's early 80's i believe) and I also believe it has a 5-7 man flight deck.

A visitor from - posted Thu July 2, 2009:
Looks like a old plane but amazing dials.

A visitor from Argentina posted Sat May 2, 2009:
The controls are with the perfect light tone, they seem to be running.

A visitor from Argentina posted Sat May 2, 2009:
This photograph is much greater than the other one, now I see that both sides have the same controls

I totally saw that CRT in front of the throttles in Blade Runner...

Ever seen a russian aircraft without a "Miefquirl" as we call it, meaning a "stink stirrer" (open ventilator).

A visitor from Australia posted Sat July 26, 2008:
A simple straight forward layout

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed July 9, 2008:

I think that the photo has admirable detail and provides a good overview of the cockpit environment.

A visitor from United States posted Tue January 1, 2008:
Those iconic Russion cockpit fans will never die! Simple, proletariat in a way.

Wonderfull shot of a wonderfull aircraft...and as always the typical fans for almost every russian plane love it 5*

A perfect shot considering the poor light and conditions inside. Well done Tim!

A visitor from Australia posted Mon December 31, 2007:
Takes me back to the early days of Jet Aviation, and some very fond memories. This would be the ultimate of todays cargo ac if this cockpit technology was brought into the modern era.

A visitor from Turkey posted Mon December 31, 2007:
