Final approach into Rwy21L of Bangkok Int'l, the famous pond is coming up before we reach the runway. The spacious cockpit of L1011 can hold 5 people at once (3 crew + 2 jumpseat) A flight that I will never forget! [Nikon D2x, Nikkor 10.5mm Fisheye]

Fantastic photo! You can see a lot of things, because there are some many and big windows! Between the runways you can see the famous golf course!

I love this shot. Firstly a nice picture of a classic airliner and secondly the 'mood' captures the concentration and attention present in the cockpit in those critical moments before touchdown. You can almost feel the sensitive adjustments the captain is making to the throttles as he eases the big plane down.

Very nice shot. I'd give anything to ride in the cockpit of a Tristar.

That’s what a proper cockpit looks like lots of proper old instruments and no computer screens. I just love these old Tri-Star’s.

Great Shot Sam! I guess the captain had the audio on the comm radios switched to "speaker"....he's not wearing any headset and he's doing the flying! AQ in NYC
