Hi Don, List,

Altitude, speed, attitude - if the pilot doesn't know _what_
they are looking at, how big it is, how far away it is, or what
(3-dimensional) shape it is, how can he determine these factors?

I don't dispute that a pilot could provide a good estimate of
angular size, relative elevation/depression, and apparent
vertical motion, but that's not quite the same is it?
