    Mycockpit.org 737 dv window dimension

    Hi Folks,

    Steve,

    I don´t have them, BUT:

    I will be on a real 738 by the end of next week, and I deem it likely I will be able to visit the flightdeck. In that case I will have a ruler with me and take dimensions for you. ´d that be ok? Would be good you sent me some pic with drawn-in lines where exactly you want the measurements.

    Chris

    Re: 737 dv window dimension

    Ok, I did it. I flew to Berlin yesterday morning and back in the evening. Both times, I was lucky to have extremely friendly pilots to let me measure some stuff in their pit. So here is the story:

    First plane I saw was a Air Tahiti Nui A340, named "Moorea". Reminded me of some wonderful VFR flying between that Atoll in the Pacific ocean and Faaáa Airport.

    Here´s a collage from my pit with the Tahiti background, hehe:

    EDDF was overcast yesterday. Here´s the pushback from Terminal 2.

    Two pics of the new Berlin-Brandenburg Airport still under construction, will open in July 2012. It is located at the former east-german airport Schönefeld (EDDB). A little bit of haze over Berlin (METAR would tell you "BR").

    Landing on 26R at Tegel (EDDT) while a Learjet waits for T/O clearance. Obviously, around 0900Zulu is rushhour at Tegel.

    Re: 737 dv window dimension

    The eyebrow windows narrow towards outside, so I measured the sun visors, which neatly place into the opening at the outside border:
    width in the center: 22 cm.
