Good evening.

I beg your pardon in advance in case I ask a question that already has been discussed in this forum on an earlier occasion.


On some BA 752s, I have observed that they have a black ring on the cover of the radar dome, some do not appear to have.
What does the black ring indicate (supposing it's not just there for fun).

Best wishes,

All that work to research it and post a bunch of links.... I'll go ahead and just answer the question.

It indicates the aircraft is equipped with a microwave landing system.
