then why have I personally removed several sextants and their mounts from the eyebrow windows from 727's
I'd really love to see a picture of an eyebrow window from a 727 with a sextant mount in it, because, in the 25+ years I've worked on 727's and 737's (and other aircraft) I have yet to see one with a sextant mount in it.
I think you need to go look at pictures of 737NG's, because everyone I've seen and or worked on has eyebrow windows.
As has every 737NG I've seen or worked on however, and I am unable to find it on Boeing Commercial Airplane's site right now, they did make mention that they were doing away with the eyebrow windows on future
Also the windows were not rendered usless by TCAS and TCAS II, manufacturers began designing airplanes without eyebrow windows long before TCAS was thought of.
Quite true in the litteral sense however, consider that we were talking about the B-727 & B-737 aircraft. In the case of those two aircraft, TCAS and TCAS II has
made the need for the visibility provided by these two windows obsolete, so I stand by my previous statement in the context of this thread.
