Shots from a test flight from Reunion Island to Paris Orly (approx 10hrs 45mins) before I commit the flight to video.

Thank you Steve, When I'm in the pit she feels like any other 742...but with a little more power. I don't notice the missing fuselage section. :)

Beautiful set of shots! I always liked the SP! 

I recently bought the new Viking Aviation cockpit video, featuring the SP of Iran Air, beautiful stuff!

I did the same. I thought it was excellent and I gleaned a lot of info from it for my panel.... for example single apu.

In the meantime, they all got stored. 
But it´s great to see these beautiful machines in action, flown by great and knowledgeable crews!
