|Assunto:||A cockpit too many word choice question|
As previously pointed out, neither sentences is wrong, the following observations can, however, be made:
"... and while the cockpit appeared small in comparison to (1) “that of” most allied fighters, it was well laid out (2)”
(1) ironing out a minor ambiguity
"... and while small in comparison to most allied fighters, the cockpit appeared well laid out."
(3) The phrase appears back-to-front as it stands. A suggested improvement is as follows:
"... and while the cockpit was small in comparison to (that of) most allied fighters, it appeared well laid out."
