Have you ever seen an Il-18 cockpit at night? Did you even know that instruments are UV reagent? It's so spectacular! This one is dedicated to Zoltan Ruzsom and Tibor Almadi!

5 stars for the subject, and some additional info: the plane was stored from 9th February 1987. Nobody touched the systems for 25 years, nobody carried out any maintenance except of repainting. On 7th July 2012, we connected the ground power, and almost all systems came back to life. It was a magnificient moment!

Spectacular! My question is, doesn't the UV light harm pilot's eyes or it is a special kind?

Absolutely spectacular. Although had the luck of flying as PAX on this mighty airplane type, have had no idea that cockpit looks so cool in the dark! Definitely beats any EFIS screans for sure! Superb photo, very well done Tamas.:)

Although I appreciate the nice scene this glowwy tech creates, I think it would get on my nerves if I had to fly this plane every night:)
