A plane with a view

I stumbled upon a wonderful gallery of photos taken from the cockpits of aircraft. The one shown here was taken during a mid-air refuelling manoeuvre by a KC-135A Stratotanker and an F-15 Eagle aircraft. An amazing view.

But I think my favourite is the wonderful image showing the controls of the cockpit of a Boeing 747-200. It may not be taken in flight, but it's a great shot.

Although, stunning as the photo is, it does make me wonder how any pilot can possibly know what's going on with all those controls. Scary.
