NWA tends to use tape engine instruments in all its widebodies. Including the DC-10s. I can't be bothered to find pics, but they're here . Why they do this? Who knows. Perhaps for more comonality within their fleets? Certainly their 747 classics and DC-10s are abnormal.

Hello, i'm actually the uploader of this shot, so let me say thank you first!
Your question: semi-glass cockpit. On that flight, I do ask the same question to the pilots too, they told me NW is currently extending the -200 life by adding Digital Engine Display, he also said NW will continue their digital renovation, including Basic Flt. Instrument Display.
