That was cool to watch- thanks for sharing that! I've always wondered what it's like up there in those cockpits.
When I was flying home for the holidays last month, I was in one of those smaller jets and was in the 3rd or 4th row from the front, and in the aisle
seat. This couple got on with their kid who was maybe 4 or 5 years old, and they asked the flight attendants if the pilots would let their kid see
the cockpit. So they did, and I got to see in there. The pilot talked to the kid, but the co-pilot was clearly busy as he flipped switches and went
down what I assume was a checklist. It was hotttt! Those pilots with their long legs all cramped in that small space, methodically and calmly going
about this what to me is a completely foreign and alien set of tasks and skills. Those pilots could look like hobbits, but they'd still be sexy
behind those controls.
