Alternative way for pilot ingress on UFO Interceptor


Don’t get me wrong on this. I love Graham Bleathman’s cutaway artwork. While I agree with his Moonbase cutaway of the Interceptors’ launch bay (Fanderson’s UFO Annual), the way the pilots enter the vehicles left me scratching my head. I always felt the Interceptor pilots entered through the hatch behind the cockpit (see attached art). Following a long tradition where the pilots enter through hatches and not through the canopy: from the bottom (Angel Interceptor), the back (Sky 1), and the top (TB2). Also looked at the large FX model and noticed where the pilot sat in relation to the canopy (see attachment).

But that’s my 2 cents.
