Good shot of the interior, but what troubles me is if this aircraft is in flight, who is looking outside. Even at FL250 shouldn't someone be scanning outside? Is ATC in Nepal the same quality as the US? Maybe it's me, but I fly the Northeast Corridor in an aircraft which is very similar and one of us is always "outside" the plane. It's a very interesting shot for that reason alone!

You can't judge about their entire cockpit activity from one snapshot. Planes such as this one are required to have TCAS, so even when they are heads-down, at this altitude, they are safe. 5*

Nice picture and who knows why and how long they are looking inside.

Maybe they try ti figure out why there is such a throttle split and left still running higher.

Also wondering why I never have such a cute co-pilot :)

Does 1900D fly above 15000ft???

The levers that are in different positions are the propeller levers, not throttles. The propeller syncrophaser can only keep the props in sync within 25 RPM of each other. Why is the FO not wearing a headset? :O
