    FYI, unless they’ve used the same sticker/hole cover in two different implementations (which I doubt), that’s where you’re supposed to stick the fire extinguisher nozzle in case of an electrical fire.

    Whats scary is all the software behind that machinery has less computing power than an iPad app, much less an iPad itself.

  6. So.. Who’s the first to clone this in Flight Gear or other flight simulator? With all preflight procedures of course…

    The only thing better than huge high res aviation porn is having it locked up in a DRM tool of suckiness. They get repeat business for their advertising and I get to have a hard time zooming in to view any level of details because the tool sucks. Weeeeeeee. 

    Thats so much better than using Gimp or Preview to move through the photo because it involves a web browser!

    By no means GigaPan quality, but I did manage to get a couple of good up-close shots of the Shuttle Landing at Dulles:

    I’m always fascinated with this kind of thing.  And I love how the reality of the “space age” isn’t glossy touch screens and sentient computers but grimy toggle switches, and lots and lots of velcro.
