I was looking at some photos on here of PA 747s, and I noticed in the more recent ones (mostly late 80s-early 90s) that their 747-100s only had two windows on the right side of the upper deck, while the left side had three windows. Can anyone explain why? Thanks.

In Clipper Class, which was upstairs in these 747-100's, the cabin interior was configured in such a way that the first window on the right side of the fuselage was blanked out. This part of the interior was a storage space for garments or was an internal structure that was used to visually seperate the cabin and thus there was no need to have a window.

Actually the front of the upper deck was not storage, but the galley for the upper deck. Just to the front of that was the bathroom.

I've also read that early PA 747-100's had a port in the cockpit for a sextant so an engineer could navigate by the stars if need be . Anyone else heard of this ?
