Wow, this photo really gives a good perception of how spacious the Ten Eleven's cockpit is and how big the windows are! It's amazing seeing these old birds still flying. Fantastic photo, Sam!

Amazing shot and angle! I wonder how Sam managed to get into the cockpit during final?? Whenever I asked they wouldn't let me -> safety reasons

Having ridden in one of the two jump seats(the elevated one behind the Captain)aboard an EAL L1011 in 1973 this brilliant capture of the entire deck with the three man crew epitomises my memory like no other I have seen. The wide angle, clarity and the depth of field to take in the external landscape is perfection. I have video I took on one of those flights but it is obviously not even close to this image.
