    Nose Sectional Help

    Hi All,

    Big question for me at the moment is does anybody know if the 787 cockpit section is actually smaller than the 777? I might have to go a bit smaller and this would be a nice option but I would like to make sure that it is actually smaller.

    PS, this is with full interior liners and jump seats.


    Thanks,
    Lewis

    787 is composite based (filament wound on a HUGE spindle) section 41 while 777 is standard sheetmetal construction. Hard to tell on the 787, with the way it's constructed. I was part of a small tour of 10 people that went through the building it's made in last October. It used to be the 757 building before that program got retired.
