The great highlight of the flight was both Roni and I are not only able to visit the cockpit during the flight, but we also scored a landing inside the cockpit! This was my first on Iran Air. The Captain who operated this flight was the Iran Air B747 fleet manager, upon my request;

he pushed the speed up to Mach 0.884 to show me what a B747-SP can do! Absolutely incredible! I guess the few minutes of show have cost a thousand dollars? What an amazing gesture!

Enjoy the pictures of my joyride.
