An amazing machine for sure. I managed to have a guided tour of the cockpit at the time I visited it, and the whole thing is MIND blowing!

I didn't see the Flight Engineer's panel in the vid, and that runs right across the aft end of the cockpit. And there's ten of EVERYTHING on there.  :o
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.
