Can you take some pictures of the cockpit? I love the old 747 classics, especially the SP. I'm jealous you get to fly on one! And of course do amazing scientific work.

It's important to keep in mind that the ME (Oman, Qatar, etc.) have little to no legislation to help expats, or workers in general. Expect the contract you signed to be torn up and a new one written out of thin air just because the owner wants more money. And there's nothing you can do about it. Also you can be fired for sneezing the wrong way, or just not getting along with someone. Basically your best bet is to just visit for a few weeks at a time first and make connections. But Turkey is the most westernized out of all the ME region (Besides Israel of course). Just something fyi.
