    Re: new plug and play 747 MCP and EFIS

    Why are the EFIS panels smaller than the MCP???

    Probably because the electronics of the 737 has been used to cut costs. Panel wise this can be solved easily. The 747 efis is somewhat higher and has some space below the pushbuttons.

    If you look closely you will also notice the pushbuttons are in a 737 format with engraved backlit texts, whereas the 747 has blank pushbuttons.

    A small compromise to reduce costs.
