Photo: Is It A 737-300 Or An Air Force T-34?

Thu Dec 20, 2001 8:23 pm

In 1995 I've taken a flight deck photo of a 737-kind aircraft at the van Nuys Air Show.

Unfortunately I can't remember if there was a USA-Air Force T-34 (737-200), but I remember the United Shuttle 737-300. So I always thought this is the photo I've taken of the cokpit of the United 737-300 (N375UA). But somehow the flight-deck seems to me the one of a 737-200. As as I mentioned, I can't remember having seen a 737-200-like aircraft, but maybe there was one and I even now missmatched the photo.
Can anybody identify this aircraft? If so, please explain.

I was at that airshow, and I believe it is a T-34. It certainly is a -200 example  Smile

Um a T-34 is a prop trainer from the Korean era...I think that was a typo and you guys meant "T-43" which is a 737-200 used for training in the USAF...

Judging from the switches on the glareshield I'd say that this is a 737-100. Not even a -200. The airspeed indicator is small old type too. And have you noticed that there are 4 fuel gauges? Or is the forth one different from the others? (I have trouble with my graphics card at present)

Oh yes, Greg, you are right, it's a T-43, not a T-34.... sorry about that.
So at the moment it seems it really is a T-43..... not a commercial 737-300.....

That's a -200. Note the SP-77 autopilot!

I have now changed the aircraft type info from 737-300 into T-43. Thank you very much for the help.
Anybody here who was at the 1995 van Nuys Air Show too?

What kind of autopilot does the -100 have then? Are the engage switches located somewhere else? The -200A have a different layout on the glareshield.

does the US-Air Force have military versions of the 737-100? I think there are only 737-200 military versions (talking about the T-43).
Correct me if I'm wrong.
