Avidyne/S-TEC Alliant glass flight deck in a 1987 King Air 200 aircraft
This is the cockpit of a 1987 Beechcraft King Air 200 aircraft after an electronics upgrade to an Avidyne/S-TEC Alliant Integrated Flight Deck (including digital autopilot). Probably only a trained flight crew can appreciate the sophistication and the new system. Glass displays replace many of the old ones.
Also, you had to be there as it was happening to realize how complex a job it was.
The photography was done with a Hasselblad 39-megapixel system using studio strobes, long exposures and multi-captures to accurately record all the different light densities. The result is a single 1.6GB image file.
