Is the Forward pressure bulkhead in front of the pilots.. I.e when you lift the Radome for maintenance is that the Forward pressure bulkhead you can see? Some images or a diagram would be great.

It's located in the aircrafts radome (nose) where the weather radar is located. It's to keep the pressurized air from exiting the fuselage.

    $\begingroup$ It doesn't always have to be there - on the A380 it's slightly further back than that and is a complex structure which involves half of the front wheel well - they build a further structure up to actually make the nose, but the pressure bulkhead is further aft. $\endgroup$
