You don’t have to be a pilot to appreciate the shear coolness of these two aircraft flight decks. The Boeing 787 and Airbus A380 are two of the most advanced airplanes in the world. The front offices of these birds are truly impressive. Large LCD displays, fly-by-wire, side sticks, keyboards…  I can’t imagine a pilot that wouldn’t want to grab a seat in one of these and take a spin around the patch.

Aerospace-Technology.com did a nice piece comparing the two flight decks. Check out the article and bask in the state-of-the-art aero tech.
