Taken at the Museum of Transport and Technology, 10 December 1997. This view is taken from the cockpit - standing by the pilot's seat (you can just see the edge of it) looking aft. I hope this gives some impression of how far aft the glazing extends - right to the astrodome in fact, above the wireless operator's position. Visibility from the cockpit is very good - but I can understand why the crew in the 'office' felt exposed!
