Two things make this pic interesting:
1-look at the size of trucks. It shows how high the cockpit is.
2-The unprotected cooling fans in Russian planes’ cockpits always surprising me. I think those fans definitely need a guard otherwise it would cause seroious injury to the fingers of pilots!!

He has his hand on the yoke to key the mic and read back the information he's receiving over the headset about radar vectors, altitudes, etc. from clearance delivery. That's what he's writing down on the paper! 5*****, a rare cockpit sight!

Russian cockpits are very different and they look old fashioned to me, but I am always delighted whenever I see one! those risky fans should be placed overhead or at the back. and also i welcome the captain to visit my country with an An 124 and get some more similar looking caps. I can bet they will be cheaper than anywhere else!

Reason those cooling fans are not protected or guarded (as many here commented) cause blades made out of rubber not steel, they will not do any harm when spinning if you touch them.

Awesome! Glad to see eastern birds popping up in the west. I like it when an airport is diverse.

Can't describe why but there has always been something I like about their green instrument panel colors.

Hi, the white cap isn't a part of the uniform, but a Muslim cap used for praying and good luck.
