Four things,

1) thats a sweet camera looking down from the tail

2) notice how many cup holders it has?

3) holy jumpseats, got enough room for all the buddies you cant take along into the cockpit

4)the hud that is flipped down is really sweet.  there are very few carriers that have that and it allows for cat3 ils which is pretty scary in itself

Well, a winged computer, an imitation of craft....

For European planes, go Antonov. (for me at least)


Ryan, I know that there is a HUD in Dash8 or Legacy permitting Cat 3, is such in Beeches too? And you dont really have to have hud for cat III

I've flown a PC12 that has an EVS or Enhanced Vision System in it.  It's not a HUD, nor is it approved for Cat II or III approaches, but it sure helps to illuminate that dark runway so you can check for deer, elk, and other pesky little varmints that might be in your way.  Its really slick to operate, no doubt.   |:)\
