    Just click on picture and move the mouse in any direction to scan. Great picture!

    Don't forget to look at the ceiling! So many buttons, so little time to operate!

    This is a keeper …. For "history's sake"............

    Impressive array of buttons and dials, how many of you would like to just have a look around and play about and see what they all do... ??

    Now hand up, be honest, how many of you say the washing machine/dishwasher is too complicated to work %-(

    Eeek.

    I've got the Shuttle on MS Flight Simulator. You start to fly (glide) at 85,000ft and over 1000kts. You have to slow down make two turns and land at Edwards AFB which is 80miles away. I've managed it once in about thirty attempts. God knows how hard it would be with all the knobs and buttons as well :coolsteer) .

    Very high tech, especially the two portable fluorescent work lights, either side of the cockpit!
