Totally agree!

It was standard practice years back, in one UK company, for the software engineers responsible for military helicopter engine management to "ride in the back" during testing, anyone who has seen the inside of the Lynx helicopter would know once you've put in a 1980's test rig there ain't much room left...

For one of the fail-safe systems I was the software lead on, that got used by millions of people over nearly 20 years (yes you didn't read about it because it worked!) had a team of three responsible for the OS and hence everyone knew who they were, by name....
