Cockpit of the Airbus A380 - Interactive Panorama


A colleague sent me this email today:

As you move your cursor you can see the whole cockpit from top to bottom. You can even zoom on the dash [sic - instrument panel is the term]. Most panoramas are of landscapes. This 360-degree panorama is unlike any other - It’s a picture of an Airbus A380’s cockpit. Be sure to go to full screen.


Panorama photographs are becoming increasingly popular on the Net. That’s because software is making it easier than ever to create them. The Airbus A380 is the largest passenger airliner in the world. It can seat more than 850 people. Only a couple of the
planes are in service. So, you’ll probably have to wait for your first ride. Until then, check out its state-of-the-art controls, top, bottom and all around.

After a quick look, I had to force myself to go back to work and defer the frustrated ex-pilot geekery until this evening.

    That is truly incredible.
    It reminds me of my very first VCR when I tried to program it.

    I brought up the website on my double-wide screen at work and was lucky that I had the will power to close it before the addiction could set in. It was a close call . . .
