This may be an old subject, but why are some of the A380 windows Red? Im sure they aren't painted and must be red from something on the inside. Just curious

Enlarge this photo, you will see the red windows on the lower deck, first window and the window right before the wing

Like all aircraft in test phase, there are many probes and sensing equipment beging used to sample airflow, pressure and all types of things. These windows are where the probe is installed in a 'blanking' window.
