You bet she can. Here's one of my personal photos to prove it (I spun the image 90 degrees counter-clockwise for better effect):

During 1975, Noel Widdefield, RSO (back-seat systems operator), took my cheap little Kodak X-15 camera up while we were in Okinawa, Japan to grab me a few souvenir photos. I've been in most of those Blackbirds. 17964 & 17972 were my favorites. Installing the seat kits & parachutes as well as dressing crew members into the space suits & installing them into the Habus was my USAF gig back in the mid 1970s. Awesome machines.

Nicely captured, Dave. You helped to put a big, warm smile on my face.


A shot I grabbed with the same camera, also in Okinawa:
