Maxim,That seems to be the oxygen panels for the pilots. And they are used for breathing when you run out of cabin air... ;-)Cheers,

Hey, MaximUnless I miss my guess, these red buttons are representations of the independant crew oxygen supply. These buttons have two functions. They are squeezed gently together by the crew member, who will hear a rush of oxygen coming from underneath the buttons. They then know that the oxygen supply is working. Each crew member has their own supply to themselves in the event of a decompression. Under these buttons, is a box containing the crew oxygen mask. The buttons form part of the box lid, and they must be squeezed tightly together to release this lid, and the mask inside is then taken out and put on by the crew member. Hope that answers your question. Andy
