This changes everything...

Aviators sit in the shade of their weatherbeaten, fabric-covered biplanes, exchange hangar talk and tell stories of their barnstorming days before they take to the air again and fly toward the setting sun ....

Am I right to be suspicious that the view outside is from considerably higher altitude than the plane whose cockpit we're seeing can probably reach?

Maybe.
On the other hand, given the readings of the engine instruments that are being so closely monitored by this animal, that plane is very likely flying.

A message from The Squid

”Mr. Pig*, you’ll never know the experience of turning final with a tentacle on each power lever, yoke, rudder pedal, AND the autopilot.”

*And neither will you humans, and in fact, soon you won’t have any experiences of turning final after we take over.

Happens to the best of us (whenever you read something stuppid written by "me", it was actually the work of my stupid semi-independent fingers).

Btw, here's context for my previous comment (TL; DR: insider Evanie and Not_as insider Pilots amicably discuss aeroplanies getting too close to each other).
