Be Just Like John Travolta!

No, not Sweathog Travolta.

Not Vincent Vega Travolta.

Not even Battlefield Earth Travolta.

No, in this case, you can be like Airliner Pilot Travolta thanks to the Interweb and this great and surprisingly high-res VR view of an A380 cockpit courtesy of French photography Gilles Vidal. Use your mouse to look around and the wheel (or the controls on the bottom of the screen) to zoom in and out. It’s the next best thing to being the sort of person that a company like Airbus actually invites to be the first non-test-pilot to fly an airplane like the A380.

Even if the slight fisheye and so-close-but-you-can’t-quite-touch-it effects of the VR do make you feel a bit like (wait for it …) the Boy in the Plastic Bubble.

Sorry. I couldn’t resist. That’s we we in the self-aggrandizing world of online self-aggrandizement call "an easy one."
