Virgin Atlantic Boeing 787-9 Cockpit

Didn’t know if this was the right place for it , but anyway, a view of the Virgin 787-9 cockpit at the gate at Heathrow on arrival from San Francisco, just this Tuesday. Took the picture as I was an unacommpanied minor flying, and because we landed 1hr 45 mins ahead of time I was held on the aircraft for a while, so the co-pilot gave me a tour of the beauty and also the Cabin’s Sleeping Area above the first class cabin and economey cabin. Amazing aircraft, especially the way VA has configured it.


This is a very modern plane, you’re lucky to have this experience.

Here are my cockpit picsimageUploading…


Wait for the second one to upload first. Also what is the aircraft of the first one

Yeah aircraft and carrier? Always a great experience to be in one these days, especially as they aren’t a regular oppurtunity due to higher security procedures!

MD80 American is the first one

The 2nd one is a 727

It says uploading

I’ve gone in a 737, 717, 727, A319, A320, E190, E170, CRJ700, MD80,88,83,90.
I just don’t have pics for all of them. There are two ways to get in a cockpit. The first one is to peek in the cockpit and act amazed. Then the stewardess or steward might let you in. The second is ask the steward/stewardess to let you in and they probably will.


Yeah. I was invited in by the co-pilot but would’ve probably asked anyway lol!

I once sat in the cockpit during landing! it was amazing! But i lost them…

‘lost them’?

Yea, i don’t know where i put them! Im joking! I don’t know if i deleted them.

I’ve been to the A340 cockpit. Beautiful as this one.

Wait, they wouldn’t let you off the plane because you where an unaccompanied minor.

Basically, we landed a whopping 1hr 45 minutes ahead of the scheduled arrival, meaning upon arriving at Heathrow, the Virgin Atlantic Crew Member who escorts unaccompanied minors was already dealing with a departing aircraft and wasn’t available, so we had to wait on the plane until they became available, which was like 25 minutes later.

Is there flap 17 and 18?
