Hi all,

I was asked by a friend of mine on this photo...

Photographer says its SIA, and SIA uses PW engines for their B747s which would give EPR, N1 and EGT... as shown by Alan Tsui

So clearly, comparing the 2 EICAS, the first photo is not an SIA B747, my question is, what engines would they be, and what airline?

Thanks.

With all due respect to the photographer, this should not be a SIA B747-400. SQ B744s are powered by PWs and you should see EPR, N1 and EGT rather than EGT and N1 (in the pic) on GEs and Fox 40 don't look like this from the cockpit.

Just my 2 cents



Boeing747 万岁!

I am not a pilot
I can not see clearly what is on the screens in the first picture.
However, I agree that informatiton displayed looks different.
But couldn't it be because the first picture is taken when the plane is on the ground, and the second on in flight?
On the second one, you clearly see the outside temp (-19), a speed, etc.
On the first one, you can see all the airport lights on the ground.
That's why I will trust Paul, if it says it is a SIA plane (especially because he gives the flt number)
And I will trustr Alan too

Can you not change the screens to display something different?
IE see N2 instead?
i think you can look at different guages for different things on the engines, i didnt realise engine choice made a difference.

N2 is displayed on the lower EICAS I believe, the screen just above the throttle quadrant. GE engines don't show EPR, it goes the same on the B744, B777. Besides the aircraft is on the ground, and the gear position shouldn't be at 'off'.

Teva -

I'm sure you're a qualified airline pilot Big grin Of cos we all trust Paul, I'm just wondering since I'm pretty sure you cant change the EICAS display (and why would you)... I'm also wondering which airline would allow their landing gear selector to be placed at "OFF" while I've been told from higher authority that SIA policy prohibits this totally.

Also, at F40, you can only see the terminal lights (holding room and Bay no, and gate alignment system) from the 744 deck, and not the ground lights.

Regards

Tsentsan, I like your espionage! Paul surely has some explaining to do regarding this photo. Another thing, anyone noticed the flaps lever is at full flaps?

Paul, care to speak up or too scared to admit?
