1. Many of the default aircraft's cockpits have an invisible bounding box around them which doesn't let the camera "leave" the pit in order to move your view outside/to the wing. however, older aircraft may still support this. (I tried this on the default B738 -- can't get the camera 'head' outside in order to save the Quicklook) However I was successful with the 3rd party EADT x737 for example...
.. so yes it can be done, but the aircraft may not allow you to do this.
2. QuickLook's aren't being saved right now for some reason. I can pan and save shift-6 position, then '6' brings it back up -- but this isn't surviving restarts yet (yah yeah yeah, i'll file a bug report!) ;) i.e. nothing is being written to the ACF_prefs.txt text config file which normally saves the __iql__quicklook variables.
