Your pilot comment is laughable, Either you have no idea about real world Aviation or you work at a FSDO. I have seen thousands of Pictures that pilots have showed me of landmarks, Other Aircraft, and of each other messing around on the flight deck. These are pilots with Commercial and ATP ratings. Everything is not always done by the book.
I'm sorry, but isn't that what the pilots en route to KMSP did? Chilling on laptops is certainly not "by the book" and they were ATP's. Now, their careers are down the toilet. What's laughable is your seeming denial of the dangers this F-16 situation caused.
Personally, I'm going to leave out the taking of pictures and messing around on the flight deck that you described. I think I'd rather be fully situationally aware of what's going on, as should ALL pilots.
But that's just me.
