Instruments are UV reagent since they didn't need bulbs for each one. I dedicated this shot to Tamás Bodorics, Tibor Almádi and Zoltán Ruzsom!

I can't stop staring at this photo! Excellent detail. I had no idea this is how they lit instruments in some aircraft.

Five stars. Is this UV a regular lighting on this IL-18? Then pilots must probably fly in green goggles and boast some nice sun-tan ))

"No you may not taxi this aircraft; only I may taxi".. says the captain looking over at the F/O in the right seat. (Note the difference between the controls on either side).

The UV was regular on all Il-18 and Il-14. Actually the original lights had a lens, which is blocked the blue light component, so it was completely dark except of the instruments. 5 stars!

Ohh, this expains everything now as to why Russian pilots and for that matter any pilot flying these nightclubs was always in the mood to drink and party. Trips me right out to my bedroom in the eighties.
