I have never seen one:
"When you board,there is a metal registration plate above or on the side of the open door which indicates year of manufacture"
Does anyone have photos of a reg plate on a 744?
Many thanks!

Here is the FAA requirements for the manufacturer's plate:

Interesting read  

From that:

Quote:

b. Type and Placement of Identification. The identification must be fireproof, placed where it is not likely to be defaced or removed during normal service, and placed on a noncritical surface that is not normally removable (for example, not on an inspection plate, removable fairing, or access cover). Refer to table 1 below for additional identification plate location information.


Table 1, Identification Plate Location
Aircraft or Equipment Location Comments
Aircraft, except for balloons (1) Outside the aircraft so that it is legible from the ground, either just behind and next to the rear-most entrance door or on the fuselage near the tail surface.
(2) If the aircraft was manufactured before March 7, 1988, some other interior or exterior location near an entrance, so that it is legible from the ground, either just behind and next to the rear-most entrance door or on the fuselage near the tail surface. The model and serial numbers also must be displayed on the fuselage exterior.






For aircraft described in (2), the FAA accepts locations where you have to open a door, or remove items such as baggage or carry-on items, to make the plate visible. The plate may be covered or enclosed if it can be uncovered without tools or removing aircraft components.
Engines At an accessible place where it will not be lost in an accident.
Propellers, propeller blades, or propeller hubs On a noncritical surface. If possible, where it is visible without disassembly of the propeller.
Balloons On the balloon envelope and, if practicable, where it is legible to the operator when the balloon is inflated. Mark the basket and heater assembly with the manufacturer’s name, part number (or equivalent), and serial number (or equivalent).

All commercial aircraft have these....although locations tend to very. Most times they are located on the tail

All non-ultralight aircraft have to have them. Even home-builts and balloons.

Every commercial a/c I ever worked on had the plate in or around the L1 door area (on the UK Register) HS748, Comet, Trident, BAC 1-11, DC10, L1011, Bae 146, Avro RJ, Airbus A300 - B4, B727, B707, Viscount, Vanguard, Argosy. If not around the L1 door, they were in the area near the flight deck entrance. I have never seen one near the tail.


Oldtimer, I should have known better!

All our aircraft, Boeing and Airbus have a stainless steel plate in the L1 pax door aperture at about head level. It is riveted to the door frame and is visible when entering the aircraft if you look up slightly.
Most aircraft also have a stainless steel plate on or adjacent to the cockpit door (inside) which gives details of the owner, usually a bank you have never heard of!)

Never seen that. But we are not FAA.

Also every engine has a similar data plate that stays with it for life.

B727's had them on the door frame near the aft airstair pressure door. Embraer aircraft have them mounted on the belly on the tail. Saab 340/2000's have them mounted on the fuselage under the LH horizontal

Most GA planes here in the USA have the manufacturer's data plate underneath the horizontal stabilizer on the pilot's side of the aircraft.

Obviously an FAA requirement, but as stated previously, UK, and to my knowledge the rest of Europe, have these plates around the L1 door area.

As do all commercial aircraft in the US that I have seen. I'm thinking that there's an exemption to the above quoted regulation to provide relief for ICAO standards.
