Default Multi-player / Back Seat View - C/P Aircaft Not Rendered

Multiplayer - Only,
With no client pilot in the front position.
When selecting the No. 2 pilot position, and spawning into the DCS environment, no cockpit or aircraft is shown/rendered. However, it seams as if I am spawning onto the map where the aircraft and no 2 pilot positions should be, if that makes sense.

Am I missing something?
Can a client spawn into the back seat of the L-39 if there is not a front seat client?

I can open a mission in single player, spawn into the front seat, and then move to the back seat, with the cockpit view and aircraft rendered.

Yes this I understand, however, my question is, basically,
can a client spawn into the rear seat position (from the Multiplayer-Select Role menu), when the front seat position is not occupied by another client?
When I try this, I get the scenario as above.

I don't know for sure, but I have also experienced this. I think there always has to be a person assigned to the front seat.

Correct. You cannot operate the back seat without someone in the front in multiplayer because you would not be able to start the aircraft. If you want to fly the back seat in multiplayer, find a friend.

Aah, OK that makes sense. I experimented with it last night. Got the jest of how it all works now.
Thanks!!!
