This is my mechanian Buccaneer, Pepper, after her "Charger" conversion, in which the cavity behind her braincase has been expanded and adapted to accommodate a cockpit which can either seat an observer or a specially trained pilot who uses computer-controlled pressure cues to take a more active role in guidance. Pepper still retains her natural color, a blue-silver dun coloration. When not needed, the cockpit equipment, liner and glass canopy are removed and a shell colored to match Pepper's head is put in place, making her appearance normal for a mechanian jet when not doing that kind of work.
I have to ask, did Pepper settle for one of her two suitors (I preferred Lewis myself)? Or is she happily single?
She eventually opted for Lewis, and had one more child by him. He had a crash that left him grounded for a couple of years while he worked his way back to fitness, but he's a good dad, and that's what matters.
Very very good
Blackburn Buccaneer FTW !
lol, as a plane having a cockpit installed in my braincase would scare me to death!
Not really "in", but behind. The cavity already occurs there as a natural protective "crash space" for the brain. They just open it up and expand it, though strict measures must be taken to keep it clean and to make sure the equipment is perfectly fitted to avoid the development of blisters and lesions.
yeah, i would figure they would be extremely careful when doing surgeries like that. lol, i keep thinking of those brain surgeries where the patient is awake and they make them recite the alphabet while they tweek with the patient's brain i figure that would be easier to do with planes because of the cavity
