Little Fruitcake has been invited to the flight deck a few times (usually because he has a SkyFlyer book for the flight crew to sign). Mrs Fruitcake and I have joined him too. I think the crew are great when they do this.

I was surprised in the 747 cockpit to see the chimney going out through the top of the plane. Not quite sure what it's for or if other planes have one.

The crew are always really apologetic they can't do this inflight anymore. From their point of view, meeting an enthusiastic passenger perhaps relieves a bit of boredom once they are locked away for the flight duration? And I agree with the OP; they take responsibility if things go wrong. Good on them on all counts.
