Ya, wouldn't that be sort of like F-16 pilots? Their sticks are on one
side, not between the legs like most jets. I don't think they make special
cockpit layouts for lefties. And their gun fires from the right side of
the plane. Shouldn't matter if the pilot is right handed or not, he would
be trained to operate the weapons in the positions they were originally
designed for.
