Amusing photo of an incompetent pilot.

I’ve seen this photo several times, accompanying a “suggested article” on one of my social networks.

A pilot who clearly doesn't know what they're doing.

It’s hard to explain why, but this photo is very funny to me. The pilot’s facial expression is so determined, focussed, and concentrated. Just to push that button. And looking at how their finger is bent, the button seems to need a lot of force. And why is the instrument panel so far away, so you have to lean forward just to push a button? Most concerning of all, I really don’t think this pilot can see out the front window—the instrument panel is huge!
