Cockpit views

A-6 Intruder cockpit from Flight of the Intruder

These were the days before the virtual cokcpits and padlock views we take for granted today but Rowan devised an ingenious system where the keypad snapped to various viewpoints. The slightly - left - and up position (Keypad 7) was excellent in a left hand turn. For the first time I could really get a grip on flying formation and keeping an eyeball on the bogie in a turn.

Circuit patterns around the carrier were suddenly a lot easier too.
