Yes! More cock­pit pho­tos!

Flight Journal - - EDITORIAL - Gary Mo­line, Fort Laud­erdale, Florida

Loved read­ing Budd Davis­son’s open­ing piece ti­tled “The Pi­lot’s Perch and Other

Neat Stuff” in the Fe­bru­ary 2018 is­sue. In it, he men­tions that the is­sue will in­clude many “cock­pit pho­tos,” and I had to cheer. No doubt, the vast ma­jor­ity of your read­ers are ei­ther pi­lots, like my­self, or Wal­ter Mitty pi­lots, so to read all about an air­plane, see sev­eral pho­tos, and not have a cock­pit photo is like watch­ing a foot­ball game from the park­ing lot. Put us in the cock­pit, please. All was great in that is­sue un­til you guys fum­bled the ball. In “Buzz Job,” the ar­ti­cle about an F-4 Phan­tom, you proudly show us an F-4 cock­pit photo, but you show us the back-seat cock­pit! Please keep the cock­pit pho­tos com­ing. Your fans will love you even more for it. Good catch, Gary! Dunno how we let that one sneak past us.—BD
