At the Controls: The Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum Book of Cockpits
Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, Washington, D.C., 2001 - Transportation - 144 pages
This is perhaps the finest collection of cockpit photographs in existence. The National Air and Space Museum holds the world's premier collection of historic aircraft, but visitors to the museum must maintain a respectful distance. In At the Controls, NASM photographers Eric Long and Mark Avino use creative lighting techniques andphotography to duplicate the sensation of actually being at the controls inside the cockpit of 45 legendary aircraft, with access not only to the instrument panels but to the consoles as well. The reader experiences a pilot's-eye view. This book will be a treasured addition to every aviation library.

This is a magnificent book. It is much too rare that we get to see the cockpits of airplanes. Long and Avino have done an amazing job of shoe-horning a high resolution camera into cramped cockpits and producing beautifully detailed pictures. The text is just as wonderful. Read full review
